The antidote to boredom
A READER ASKS
“Dear Lord, I’m ashamed to say it but I’ve been feeling very bored lately. My job is just ho-hum, my family life feels predictable… I’ve tried turning to faith, but I feel a bit ‘churched out.’ I spend way too much time in front of the TV or scrolling through Facebook. I’ve no good reason to lose my gusto for life like this. Please help me get it back!”
Wisdom of the Word
Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. —Romans 12:11
