QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS-1
Luke 2:46 “And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.”
Luke 2:47 “And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.”
In our focal scripture, we can see two great principles of life. They are the principles of questions and answers. Everything in life revolves around them.
In Luke 2:46, we were told that Jesus listened to the teachers of the law then he asked them questions. But in Luke 2:47, we were told that he displayed so much understanding that everyone that heard him were astonished; not only that he started producing answers himself.
This shows that there is a direct correlation between questions and answers. Every great man knows that questions are very critical to learning and before you can become a solution carrier or one that have answers, you need to master the art of asking questions.
Asking question is very key and everyone that have made impact in our world have been men who knew how to ask great and intelligent questions.
Voltaire said; “Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers.”
Infact, the word question is derived from the Latin root word quaerere meaning “ask” or “seek.” It has the same root as the word quest. The things you are pursuing in life can start running after you when you become a man of questions. When you study your Bible critically, you will discover that Jesus asked more questions than every other person in his days.
It is said that he was asked about one hundred and eighty nine (189) questions and he personally asked about three hundred and thirty nine (339) of his own. Jesus knew that questions are deep and as such should be paid attention to.
There are several reasons why you and I must develop our ability to ask questions and I will discuss some with us briefly.
The first reason why we must always ask questions is that; all you are looking for is hidden behind a question! Answers are revealed when questions are asked. Hear what Jesus said:
