Today’s post is brought to you by the letter Q
When I get to heaven, I have a lot of questions for God.
Some questions are a little humorous:
What were you thinking when you made the platypus?
Why is everything that tastes so good so bad for me?
What was Jesus like as a little boy?
What do dogs dream about?
When babies laugh in their sleep, are you tickling them? If not, what’s so funny to a newborn baby?
Did animals talk in the Garden of Eden?
What kind of mood were you in when you created giraffes?
Some questions are more serious:
Why did you make men and women so different?
Why did you let such a giving, generous couple die such a horrible death at the hands of a thief?
Why must so many children starve or be abused?
Why didn’t you stop abortion?
How has it made you feel to see animal cruelty?
Most of the serious questions, as you can see, are in the “why” category. And while I do know the theological answers for them, I’m still uncomfortable with the outcomes.
This world is not my home. I long for a better place.
I take comfort in the fact that God is not surprised by my questions. He made me and expects me to ask them. He doesn’t want his children to check their brains at the door to follow Him. I believe in this age of reason, it’s more important than ever to explore questions and seek God’s Word in finding the answers. In this way, we can help other seekers find answers.
Not all questions are negative. Here’s a question in the Bible that I’m particularly fond of:
“If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31)
What questions do you have for God? Share them with me so I can ask them, too!
