Questionable

No one could answer him. And after that, no one dared to ask him any more questions. Matt. 22:46

Is blind obedience the same thing as trust? The Pharisees didn’t want to be questioned. They didn’t want to consider or receive what Jesus was saying so they asked rhetorical questions they thought would trap Him into saying something they could use against Him. Instead of answering, Jesus answered their questions with questions they couldn’t answer. This shut them up. Does this imply that God doesn’t want us to ask questions? I don’t think God doesn’t want us to be curious or ask questions, but I do think He wants us to trust Him and He knows why we have the questions we do. If Jesus followers had been unsatisfied with the Pharisees’ answers; had they not been curious and asked questions, the Pharisees would still be exerting unquestioned authority. When you trust somebody you can ask them anything.

Lord, thanks for all the questions that got me where I am now.
