Do you ask enough questions?
We got back from a few days in Kentucky last week for spring break. Got to see Mammoth Cave National park (highly recommend), we celebrated Carter's 9th birthday at Grimaldi's Pizza which is out of Brooklyn and they didn't disappoint, and we also went to The Ark Encounter which is located in Williamstown, KY..about 45 minutes south of Cincinnati.
The Ark Encounter is a life sized recreation of Noah's Ark..Down to the exact measurements put forth in the book of Genesis..It is 3 floors of exhibits, animals, reenactments, and more.
And the rest of the park has virtual reality, a zoo, playground, restaurants, a zip line, and..well sloths...Cooper was in Heaven. (No pun intended)
As a Christian who struggles at times to understand my faith, I also struggle with the idea of a flood covering the Earth, an ark this huge, and the roughly 6500 animals on board.
So I ask questions.
And I ask Google, and I ask Siri, and I read books, and I'm starting the Bible soon, and I talk to friends and family, and I try to go to church and...
I keep asking questions.
If I'm not completely satisfied with the answers I get, I keep going. Once I find my peace, I will move on.
What do you have questions about?
Maybe it's something at work. Maybe it's a skill you always wanted to learn. Maybe you have tough questions to ask a parent.
Maybe it's your ignorance about racism or sexism. There seems to be a lot of talk about that right now.
Maybe it's your faith. Does anyone truly have that figured out?
Ask questions. Educate yourself. Going through life being ignorant may sound easier, but what is the cost?
And you may never get the answer you're looking for on a particular topic, but don't stop. The more you understand, the more you can be motivated.
The more motivated you are, the more compassion you will have towards those doing what you want to do, or for those affected by what you're learning about.
Sounds like a good goal to me.
To quote the late great Gallagher..Why do we park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?
We may never get that answer.
All my best as you figure out life and the relationships in it
