Is Eternity Boring?

I once led a man to Christ who loved the sunny country of common sense, but he could not put up with the mysteries of godliness. He kept shoving common sense at me, while I kept trying to show him that the mysteries held the meaning of faith.

One day he said, "Pastor, you know this new eternal life I have--well, I've been thinking about it. What are we going to do all day long for eternity?"

"We'll praise the Lord," I said.

"Forever--for ten million years!--we're going to stand around and praise the Lord?"
