I have always wanted to know and because of that I ask a lot of questions. I need to admit that I haven’t always had the greatest of motivations as I asked all of those questions. Sometimes I have used those questions to challenge my parents. Other times I have used questions to communicate my disapproval about someone’s plans or thoughts. The unifying troublesome theme when I am asking inappropriate questions is a lack of humility.
I believe good questions were created by God. They were intended for our enjoyment and growth. One of my favorite hobbies is to ask questions to people in coffee shops, while waiting in lines, when I’m sitting on park benches or any other setting where someone smiles at me. I have learned so much from all of these little endeavors into other people’s lives. I have encountered many cultures, worldviews, jokes and wildly off base thoughts. All of it has helped me to understand humanity a little more,
In my pursuit of knowledge, insight and wisdom I have come to realize that the world is a very big place. Along with that understanding is the truth that the Creator of this world is far grander than the creation. Those two simple truths have set me on a journey to ask questions that will always find their ultimate answer in God Almighty. Our God has invited us in the 8th Psalm to consider the amazing truth that even though we are so limited He still cares for us and wants us to live our lives as a quest to know Him more and more.
