Curiosity is the Inquisition of Life

Curiosity is the Inquisition of Life

Have you ever heard the expression, “Curiosity killed the cat?”    How does a brown cow eat green grass and make white milk?  Where does chocolate milk come from?  Lighten up!  “Inquiring minds want to know!”  If you don’t believe that, look at all of the ridiculous gossip headlines on the “rag” magazines at the checkout counter.  Somebody must buy them or they wouldn’t stay in business.

However, curiosity is not all bad.  A combination of curiosity and a quest for adventure motivated Columbus to discover America.  Curiosity causes babies to reach for objects and eventually learn to walk.  Children ask an astronomical amount of questions during the first five years of their life.  It is how they discover the world around them.  You will never get old until you stop learning.

Isaiah 1:17

“Learn to do well…”

Practical Application and Assignments:

God doesn’t answer all of our questions because we aren’t ready for the explanation.  When my son, Michael, was very young we traveled by car to Disneyland.  It was impossible to explain to him why he had to sit in a car seat for so many hours.  The words, “amusement park” meant nothing to him.  Eighteen hours later, he understood.

  • Learn to be content when you have to wait on the answer. It isn’t the answer that is being prepared. It is you that is being prepared for the answer.
  • Read Romans 8:31-39. These nine verses contain questions and answers that can change your life. If you are getting the wrong answers, perhaps you are not asking the right questions.
  • Turn your curiosity into a science project. For fun, make it a family affair. Explore a subject of interest.  Perform scientific experiments. Conduct your own survey.  Write a research paper.  Discover answers to your questions.  Life is fascinating.  Learn something new every day.

“Continue in the things which you have learned.” II Timothy 3:14
