The Value of Questions

I spent the first half of my life looking for answers.  Now I’m more interested in asking the right questions.  Some of them are unanswerable, full of paradox and mystery.  That seems more real, because life doesn’t fit neatly into the little compartments we make.  I read something recently that said, “Doubt is not the enemy of faith; certainty is.”   A paradox.  But faith unexplored, unexamined, unquestioned… isn’t worth much.  Questions are good, and I have more now than ever.  The issue is which of them are the ones I really need to be asking.  I trust God with the rest.
