Sometimes here in the office we stumble upon doing random things which make our days that much sweeter – singing at the top of our lungs, collecting tree logs so that Nicole can make coasters for the office, or even just surprising one another with breakfast!
Just the other day I played a game called 21 Questions with one of our ministry team members. I’m the inquisitive type so this is one of my favorite games to play! All it consists of is asking about a thousand random questions and receiving answers to each one. As I asked questions, it was quite interesting to hear the answers that revealed her heart. The deeper the questions the more deeper the answer.
Growing up I was ALWAYS the inquisitive one. Maybe some of you can relate. Questions upon questions used to fill my mind and I just had to ask. People! Places! Things! Answers were all at my fingertips and all I had to do was ask. Sign me up!
As I consider our Creator and how He has been very intentional in the way He knit each and every one of us together, it excites me to hear and learn more about each of His children. I have found that when I am most stressed, most introspective, and in my own head, something that invigorates me is to find a friend to learn more about. This helps me not only to be relieved from my own thoughts but also to gift someone with the experience of sharing a piece of their story.
How much deeper would our relationships, the knowledge of each other, and the world around us be if we became a bit more intentional in asking more questions?
How big is your family?
What is your family’s culture like?
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
How many languages do you speak?
How is your heart today?
I want to encourage you to find a friend, co-worker, spouse, or even a stranger and ask them a question today. It doesn’t have to be very deep (it can be if you desire!) but make it a question that only benefits you by growing your knowledge and understanding of them. You will be amazed at how the Lord uses this simple act to expand your view of His world and His people . . .
. . . .and also the joy that it brings.
In His love,
