Adam was not lonely because he was imperfect. Adam was lonely because he was perfect. Adam was lonely because he was like God, and therefore, since he was like God, he had to have someone to love, someone to work with, someone to talk to, someone to share with.
All of our other problems—our anger, our anxiety, our fear, our cowardice—arise out of sin and our imperfections. Loneliness is the one problem you have because you’re made in the image of God.
- Timothy Keller
The greatest enticement by the enemy is to lose yourself.
To keep yourself busy and occupy your mind with whatever you see fit.
To choose restlessness and thoughtlessness over contemplation and prayer.
He doesn’t want you to think, rest, recuperate, renewed and be transformed.
Rather, he wants you to be over-stimulated, tired, bored, exhausted and incessantly seek amusement & pleasure.
