Ask an adult what they do and they will likely have an answer. Ask a kid why and they may have an answer, but they will likely answer with another question- “Why? What do you think?”
The art of asking a question is not reserved for children, but it is an exercise we often shy away from as we get older, particularly in things we’ve been doing for a while. Whether its routine or efficiency or fear, asking a question does not come as easily to many adults, so what does it mean to have a “child-like” faith?
To some, a child-like faith conjures up feels of naivety or blind trust, but I would submit it actually is a faith of curiosity. People with a strong faith can still have questions, yet often find as much comfort in the process of seeking the answer as it do to finding the answer.
We have traveled down the pathway of questions of faith over the past several weeks and we continue our series up until Lent. What does this mean? It means we take time in the busyness of our day to question not just our faith, but how are we applying our faith.
Are we living out what it means to be created in God’s image? What does it mean when we say, “I believe in God the Father.” So I invite you, wherever your journey is, to ask questions. Take comfort in the journey of asking questions and know that we are here to journey with you in faith.
