A preacher, newly called to a small country town, needed to mail a letter. Passing a young boy on the street, the pastor asked where he could find the post office.After getting his answer, the minister thanked the boy and said, “If you’ll come to the community church this evening, you can hear me tell everyone how to get to heaven.”“I don’t know, sir,” the boy replied. “You don’t even know how to get to the post office!” ~ (From The Big Book of Church Jokes)
To some questions, like ‘Why is there suffering?’, perhaps the only answer is another question, ‘What can I do to ease the suffering of another?’ To the question, ‘Why is there so much injustice?’ our answer might be ‘How can I be more fair and just in my dealings with others?’
Perhaps too, we are not ready to receive answers to some of the questions we ask. ‘Will I ever find love?’, we ask. The answer will be ‘Look inside you.’ But, we’re not ready to hear that. We want to find it outside ourselves. I believe that when we are ready, and the time is right, the answer will come.
May you be inspired – everyday!
