Time for a Great Cartoon! (boredom)

Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 8.11.57 AM

What a great illustration of many people today!  Boredom seems to be the malady of our culture.  In Calvin’s pea brain, it’s easier to fritter one’s life away watching actors pretending to do things.

The term ennui is defined as: “a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom.”  Calvin is thoroughly infected by ennui.  What I find really sad is the bored believer.  This is the Christian who has no goals, no dreams, no aspirations for Christian growth.  Everything wearies this person.  He or she blames everyone for their lack of growth, their stagnation in spiritual things.

As someone has said, “The cure for boredom is CURIOSITY.  There is no cure for curiosity!”  What are you curious about as a believer?

Sometimes you just have to go for it!

What would you say you are GOING FOR?  What’s worthy of your full-out, no-holds-barred attention?

Don’t you agree that one of the sad signs of our times is a loss of PASSION, an emotionless going through the motions?

The term ennui describes the condition of many today, even those who profess to be followers of Jesus. I looked up the term and I found —

en·nui [ahn-wee, ahn-wee; French ahn-nwee]FirefoxScreenSnapz239

noun

a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom: The endless lecture produced an unbearable ennui.
I also had to look up the term SATIETY!  I found that it is an adjective which means satisfied, as one’s appetite or desire, to the point of boredom.
If our culture’s primary malady is boredom, what’s the cure?
Questions:
1.  What are you GOING FOR right now in your life?
2.  Do you agree with the statement: “Boredom’s only cure is curiosity.  And there is no cure for curiosity.”?
