Questions: How do you feel about where your life is at? In what ways do you see boredom being a problem in your life? What do you find boring? Can you identify why your ‘vineyard’ might be in a mess – what are your priorities? How are you facing the trials and temptations of life? What excuses can you identify that might be preventing you from overcoming lack of motivation in the godly life? What is your spiritual ‘calorific intake’ looking like these days, how is your ‘communion’ with the Lord? What do you think when you hear that it’s good to delight in the Lord? How might you endeavour to get to ‘know’ God better? What will you do to delight in God more?
