It’s okay to ask questions

Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things. 2 Tim. 2:7

Some ideas take thought. It may take some time, study, questioning and prayer before some of the truths we seek to understand sink into our heads. We should seek an environment in which questioning is welcomed. Freedom to ask questions allows for deeper exploration of ideas, meaningful dialog, and integration of abstract ideas into genuine belief and real life. We should not be afraid to ask questions. Questions should not be seen as confrontations or challenges, but as opportunities to discover more about the God we love, the God who wants to be known. We should never be afraid to say “I don’t know.” And, if we want to open ourselves to even more exciting experiences in Christ and with others, we can also respond: “let’s explore this idea together.”

Lord, I’m digging, help me understand.
