I AM LEARNING that it is okay to ask unanswerable questions: Why am I suffering? Why is God silent? Why doesn’t He answer my prayers? Why doesn’t God perform a miracle?
WHAT IF the questions I am not able to answer are the most important ones that I ever ask? What if they have more significance than the questions I have answers for?
It’s not so much the questions I ask, but Who I ask them to, and ultimately—who is doing the asking. In other words, what kind of person is doing the asking? And sometimes, the answer to that question is the only one I can provide.
ALL MEN ask unanswerable questions, though not all are honest enough to acknowledge their asking. The Greatest Man shouted the greatest “Why” question ever from atop Golgotha.
On what basis are unanswerable questions the most important? The answers I provide show who I am—and at the end of the day, that truly is of utmost importance.
