Bored with Endless Entertainment?

Isn't it funny how we can have more people than any other time in history trying to entertain us...

...and yet we can still come out bored and have those moments where we sit in front of our computer, not knowing what to do.
(Do you like my bored face?)
We have more people on earth, more games, more movies, more toys, more people we can contact, more of everything, yet we still find ourselves wanting.

My verse for the week says: "What a man desires is unfailing love..." Proverbs 19:22

One Thing I have discovered is this: We will have moments of boredom, we will have moments where we don't know what to do, but what we do with them is key. If i can harness those moments and think of a way to learn how to love God or others better, my wasted time will diminish increasingly.

Secondly, the computer is a blessing and a trap. It causes us to learn, but it also causes us to hide... to take the world in our own time... at our own pace... to deal with what we want to.... when we want to... that is not real life. Too much time in front of the computer can cause us to lose the reality of people and can become selfish.
Yes there are exceptions and yes i am condemning myself as i type, but hopefully this will urge me and others to reconsider those fork in the road moments in front of our computer where we can check out of everything or check into someone else's life.
