Boredom, Creativity, Sabbath


Exodus 20:8-11

Discussion Starter:

This video is a demonstration of what one might do when they have too much time on their hands. Or, if you like the video, perhaps not?

Have you ever found that your best ideas come to you when you have nothing else to do?

The simple fact is that our society loves to celebrate creative expression but forgets to celebrate creating time in our lives where we can be creative. Instead, we confuse being busy 7 days per week for being productive members of our society.

But don’t forget that the Creator of creativity, the Painter that colors the sunset with a million shades of orange, and the Author of life itself has given us the formula for unleashing creativity and health in our lives:

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:8-11)

Three Questions:

  1. What’s something awesome you’ve done just because you were bored?
  2. Would you rather have a protected day, say Saturday, as the Sabbath where you were forbidden from doing any kind of work or a Sabbath day you fit in when it’s convenient to your schedule?
  3. What would have to change in your life to make a weekly Sabbath seriously.

Chew on this:

What’s the relationship between boredom and creativity?

One Response to Threshold Jr – Oct 1, 2014 – Four Square Championships

  1. Karen S. says:

    Please join me and some of my closest neighbors in praying for and about the man next door to my hubby and I. He has a violent temper, maybe multiple personalities and/or is possessed, and plain clothes agents were at our houses a few years ago, asking questions about this man and telling us that he has had “a lot of drug deliveries” there at his house. (They were talking of having had boxes of drugs mailed to him.) He has some horrible-looking types, thug types that come and go, and today’s been one of the really bad days of new cars, thugs hanging out front, and this isn’t a trashy neighborhood.

    I pray for his soul, for all of their souls and have for years. I pray for handcuffs on them all, especially our neighbor that is the sole reason they are coming and hanging on our street. I feel like “enough, already, Lord!” Where there is life there is hope. I do believe that, so I pray that the Lord releases His Spirit on these thugs, for them to accept or reject, and gets them jailed very soon, sparing our neighborhood, and us next door.

    This has gone on for 12 long years. I’ve started a prayer chain and am leaving this most-sincere message of prayer request at churches that have online invitations to do so. I sincerely thank you very much, God bless and keep you and yours, Karen~
