The excellent Earworm from today’s Sermon is this: Did you ask a good question today?
What an interesting thought, sure you and I ask questions all the time. Sometimes we ask questions to gain knowledge, sometimes to be sarcastic and mean. How often do we ask good, honest questions? Real questions that actually have an effect on us and changes what we know with the answers?
I know when I was small I liked to ask questions all the time. Sometimes my questions made people uncomfortable, or made people get angry at me for asking them. Most of the time I was heavily discouraged from questioning anything.
I wonder what kind of person I would be today if people encouraged me to ask questions? If, like in the story we heard, my mother asked me “Did you ask good questions today?”
It’s something I think I’ll be asking CDubs in the future.
Such learned children we would have if we taught them all what constitutes as a good question and then encouraged them to ask them. What type of thinkers would we have?
Did you ask any good questions today, bloggers?
