July is “Anti-Boredom Month.” Maybe that’s because kids have been on summer break for so long that they’ve run out of things to do.
But I never run out of things to do, and I’m never, ever bored.
In fact, I can think of more things I’d enjoy doing, more projects, more books to write, more books to read, and more places to go than I could possibly squeeze into the years I have remaining.
I can’t do them all, but if I’m wise, I can fit in the most important ones. I can do those things that matter most.
The trick is recognizing which things really matter and which don’t. Sometimes it’s a challenge to choose wisely.
That’s why I often pray the verse on today’s coloring page:
Lord, “teach us to number our days, That we may present to You a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)
So … next time your kids complain of being bored, point them toward a few good options and teach them to pray for wisdom to use wisely the time God has so graciously given.
