(Please review the chapter summary and respond to the discussion question in the Comments Box below)

Chapter 19 – Bored

“Boredom is a manifestation of selfishness.  It can only occur when we are overly focused on ourselves.  It always means that we have set God and neighbor aside to focus exclusively on ourselves, and that is never a recipe for happiness.” (p. 123)
