3.Be courageous. Are you afraid? Do you think your question is stupid? Do you think your voice is not valid or that you won’t be heard? There are so many reasons that we don’t ask the right questions, but ignorance is not always bliss. It’s important that we ask the right questions so we have the right conversations and hopefully take the right actions. Get curious. Be open to learning. Be courageous enough to ask.
Questioning is the way of the wise. It’s the primary leadership and teaching tool of Jesus. Jesus, our powerful and able teacher, was always asking the right questions of the right people at the right time: Why are you afraid? What do you want me to do for you? Don’t you want to be healed? Yes, Lord, yes, we do. And the first step is to ask.
