Never stop questioning. Stay curious

I was excited to teach my daughter when she was 4 years old a popular song I learnt in children church many years ago.  Perhaps you can predict the song; It is “Abraham blessings are mine. I am blessed in the morning, I am blessed in the evening, Abraham blessings are mine.” I taught her during our family devotion on one particular morning however at night she asked why must it be Abraham’s blessings… and not God’s or Jesus’s blessings… Because she had a point and that our focus must be on Christ, I told her that it was okay for her to sing the song the way she wants to. So instead of singing Abraham blessings are mine… she either sing the song as God’s blessings are mine… or Jesus blessings are mine…What I am trying to pass across here is that we should ask questions like children eagerly do. Like how my daughter was not afraid to ask for clarification, we must be bold to question and verify what we hear from our leaders especially in the Church.  We must imitate the innocence and curiosity of children with a singular focus to get an answer. Furthermore, let’s be like the Berean Christians who made effort to find out if the great Apostle Paul was right or wrong. Albert Einstein once said “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”
