WHY ASK WHY?

WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, AND WHY?

You learned the importance of these questions in grade school. How they help you make sense of everything from a story you read to your experiences. 

And as you look at the state of the world, you have so many questions. A favorite among many is why? Why the pandemic? Why the political upheaval on the heels of it?

And when you look at the issues in your own life, you have more questions. Why did my father abandon us? Why is my friend distancing herself from me? Why did my job get downsized? Why did I lose my loved one?

Why did you let this happen to me, Lord?

James said if you lack wisdom, ask God and he will give you plenty (James 1:5). But not every question gets you wisdom. Some give rise to more frustration.
