I Wonder Why…
God gave us the interesting characteristic of "curiosity" when He created us. It causes us to question and inquire about the things around us. Curiosity makes us wonder and seek out knowledge. The power and consequence of being curious is credited for our advances in education, science, and technology. What drives the desire to explore, invent and discover? It is the sense given to us called "curiosity".
Curiosity makes us "think" and "wonder". What else could motivate us to seek God? As seekers of knowledge we wonder about the Creator and ponder the mysteries of life. The old adage, "Curiosity killed the cat" can be a warning of being too curious in matters that might be dangerous, however the wise man of Proverbs wrote,
- Proverbs 18:15
"The heart of the prudent acquires knowledge, And the ear of the wise seeks knowledge."
Christians are encouraged to…
- Eph. 3:1
"seek those things which are above where Christ is sitting on the right hand of God."
Thus we are to use our curiosity to seek out our spiritual path in life.
True, there are those questions we may never be able to answer, "Why must good people suffer?" or "Why is my life so challenging?" But with the right prayerful attitude we can accept things for the way they are and let our curiosity move us to please our Heavenly Father.
