I believe God loves questions. He planted inside each of us a curiosity and he graciously is willing to receive our questions. He even is generous enough to hear some of the same questions over and over and over again.
I ask questions all the time when talking with God. Of course I don’t always wait for his answer but that is another story. I have slowly learned to accept that mystery of unanswered questions that dominate much of our lives here on earth.
Jesus asked many questions: Why do you worry? What can you give? Why are you afraid? What do you want? Who do you say that I am?
Personally I am fond of the What questions.
The question that asks Where could also be a fun one to explore.
I know the Who – God
I don’t think we are to know When since we aren’t in charge, God is.
I am not sure we will ever know the Why until we are in heaven and maybe not then.
1. What does that mean? Any good Lutheran reading this will recognize this classic question that Martin Luther used both in his spiritual journey and in his teaching. A great question to probe deeper into a bible verse or to reflect on a movement within your soul.
The right question nourishes the spirit. What “what” question is your favorite?
