Dr. Don Curtis, in his book Human Problems and How To Solve Them, lists some depressing statements which indicate one is bored with life:
“Life has lost its meaning for me — I’m fed up”
“That gripes me — Everything’s a mess”
“I’m bored stiff — Everything bugs me”
“I’m sick and tired of it all — Life is the same old stuff”
Many of us have heard these same kinds of statements. Actor George Sanders wrote in his suicide note several years ago – “I am bored with living.” Why is it we try everything but the right thing to find joy in life? Why not try God? We’ve tried everything else: work, education, travel, entertainment, drugs, booze — none have given the happiness we seek. So, why not try God? This is Just-a-Minute.
