I heard someone say, “People say nothing is impossible. I disagree. I do nothing every day.”
I have found that it is the people who do nothing that get into the most trouble. By not staying busy, they create a vacuum. And just about anything can fill an open vacuum.
One of the five basic triggers is boredom. It is important for us to stay busy – not too busy, but busy. It is when we are not consumed with productivity and important relationships that we become vulnerable to all kinds of temptations.
The Bible commands us, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters” (Colossians 3:23).
Recovery Step: You need a purpose, not just for the rest of your life, but for the rest of your day. Find something worth pursuing, something worthy of your efforts, then go for it with all of your heart, passion, and strength.
