I've got the the mind of a 3 year old

I feel like I'm 3 years old again. Lately I seem to be using every 3 year old's favorite phrase all to often--why? It's a good word. It's a word that makes you stop and think. It's a reflective word. It may be a word that drives young parents crazy, but I'm thinking it may be a word that God is happy to hear us use. If you know me you won't be surprised that I'm an analytical type. Purpose driven? You bet. Evaluations? Love them. I think it's what keeps driving me forward.

So here's a sample of a few of the "why" questions swimming through my head. Some stay around for a while, other go as quickly as they come. I'm pretty sure all of them mean something.

Why do we do what we do? Why continue to do things this way? Why not try something new? Why have I not thought of this before? Why do things have to be so difficult? Why aren't there more people like you? Why am I the only who noticed? Why was God so specific about His temple layout? Why should I read the Old Testament? Why don't I ever remember reading this passage before? Why is it so hard to put truth into words? Why does Sunday come so quickly after the last one? Why did people miss the point I was trying to make? Why is what they heard better than what I think I said?

Anybody else asking "why" out there?

  1. Why can't I just get a peak at the transcending sovereign plan of God?

    Why don't more people agree with Eric in liking evaluation and purpose discussions?
