Question: You said, “Boredom is selfishness, and of the devil?”
My Answer: Sure, just ask a child who is bored to go do anything of love and good works.
That bored child’s answer usually starts with, “No way,” or, “Do I have to?” And there will be a whine in their voice.
If that is not the devil, what is?
If you give them a treat that satisfies their lusts, then they are all over it. But in the presence of the Lord is fullness of joy. So how does boredom look compared to that?
Eph 4:20 “But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 if so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.”
So boredom is an example the corruption of deceitful lust.
So who do you know that is bored and needs the gift of zoe life in Jesus?
We are destroyed, walk in failure, fear and confusion, by lack of knowledge and lies, not some administrative decision by God.
Do the right things and you will get the right results; do anything different and you will be unhappy sooner or later. Digital Universe.
Evil works inspired and powered by the devil are no match for the Living God, but they sure tempt fleshly leaky neurons, even in those spiritually righteous.
There are no wrong answers here, only seek more of Jesus who already paid for every failure we ever made, are making now, or will make. Since He was healed of it, so are you.
It will be shameful for you to show up on the Day of Judgment and see that every hardness of heart was already healed and waiting for you to do the right labour to get that hardness of heart healing already done in Jesus.
A Bible not devoured is like bags of seed stored away. The potential of God into the Earth is there, but never a harvest is made. Jesus is the Seed. The only soil that matters is your heart.
Keep Working the Word so God can Work!
God Bless You and Yours in the Name of Jesus to be more Noble in Him (Acts 17:11-12)
