ONE AMONG THE THOUSAND THOUGHTS FOR LENTEN SEASON
Hours of idle time can be relaxing for a person living in a tight schedule. More so that days of idle time can be blissful . However, when long idle hours becomes habitual, routinely and had already become part of a persons’ life, it becomes dangerous. Had you heard the saying that an idle time is the devils’ play ground? Long idle hours kills time, it bore dull minds, it invites boredom, the danger is when a group of people regularly packed together in a long, long idle hours, beating boredom, waiting for hours, the pack have to gather together to kill the remaining time they have to wait. The thirst to make something /lift minds – off in the face of long wait. Every person, having different personalities, have various ways of dealing with a situation. Some would chose to do something useful. Some would find some one to talk to. Some would go with the group, find a way to kill time. Sometimes, what seemed to be like an innocent camaraderie and group forming became a venomous spit when fun comes at the expense of another person. When the price of being jolly is to find any form of malice towards another person, i suppose that is one of the times when the devil had all smiles because the saying becomes very true: Idle time is the lair of the Devil!
I read in one book that every thing we do here on earth is recorded, every spiteful word, every unfair quotes against our neighbors, every form of insult. It reverberate in the walls of heavens and had been and always will be heard by our Father, every word, every deed!
One of the thousand thoughts for this Lenten Season!
