She feels stupid for asking them.
Reference: Then Jesus said to them, “Why is it said that the Messiah is the son of David? (Luke 20:41 NIV)
Explore: A little while ago I was chatting to a friend of mine about our faith. We have very different faith journeys and so our spiritual discussions are always interesting.
While I grew up in a very committed, faithful family, my friend has only just recently started to explore her relationship with God. She struggles with being a grown adult who only has a baby sized understanding of Christ.
Every time we meet she has a question for me. I love these discussions, but she sometimes feels stupid for asking them.
And yet, it is so much better that she asks questions and explores her faith than not ask at all. Let’s face it, none of us know everything there is to know about God so we should all have questions!
Application: Jesus was not afraid of questions. He was happy to answer them and even happier to ask them.
We can often feel bad for having questions. We think it shows a lack of knowledge.
However, unless we ask questions we are not exploring and not discovering new things. Jesus loves us exploring and discovering more about Him, so He has no issues with questions.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for engaging with our questions and challenging us with Your own. Amen.
What question do you have for God?
