I don't think there is anything wrong with being bored in conversation, by phone or face-to-face. After all, can we help what interests us and what bores us? I think the only thing we control is how interested we can act. I try my best, when I'm seriously bored in conversation, to at least act like my attention is undivided. I'm not always bored and a lot of things interest me but with a touch of ADD, you should say what you want before you lose me.
So last night, I got off the phone and returned to my paper when began thinking about some of the things I could do to stop losing interest in people so easily. At that point, I stopped dead in my train of thought and said to myself,
Now, a lot of people would say, "There's no way that Jesus would lose interest in His people." So you're telling me that Jesus gets angry, heartbroken, interested, satisfied, happy, and jealous but He would never get bored? I don't think Jesus gets bored with me personally but I am not completely convinced that He never gets bored with the things I do and the way I do things.
"I wonder if I bore Jesus."
I guess above all, whether Jesus gets disinterested in the way I do things or not, I want to make sure that the things I attempt for God are fresh and out of necessity rather than just doing things because that's the way they've always been done.
I may bore all of my friends but I want to make sure that what I do for Christ receives His genuine interest.
