God has a lot of questions directed His way. Most of them start with the word “Why.” They go like this…
· Why is there so much suffering, and so little done to ease it?
· Why is love not more obvious in people’s actions?
· Why are some in need, while others around them have plenty?
· Why isn’t there more encouragement and happiness in the world?
What’s worse, it often seems that God doesn’t reply. Perhaps that’s because the queries are misdirected.
When I’ve brought such concerns to God, I’ve sometimes sensed Him turning the conversation around and asking me those same things. Of course I’m limited to what just one person can contribute. But He knows that and expects no more.
Inquiring of God is fine. It’s also appropriate to give Him answers.
