Surely at one time or another, you have been held captive by the nonstop questions of a little one. Good and constant questioning is demonstrated time and time again by curious toddlers. As children grow, they realize that there are so many wonderful things around them, and thus these questions are a way of finding out more and more.
Speaking of questions, have you ever noticed that in the Gospels Jesus asks more questions than he answers? I read once that he asks more than three hundred questions and yet he gives direct answers to only a few. I wonder why… When I ask questions, it is because I do not know the answer. That can’t be true for Jesus. He is the answer!
So maybe Jesus asks so many questions to show us that questions are good. He is modeling for us the struggle, the wondering, the thinking that leads to deep faith. He is showing us that our faith is not found readily with simple stock answers. It is found in the understanding and believing that only comes with questioning, imagining and pondering. It is in questioning and seeking that we find the answers that get to the heart of the matter.
So, ask the Holy Spirit to help you ask the questions. Ask for the trust to accept the answers, even if they lead to more questions.
