If Albert Einstein cannot be considered a genius, who can? Yet, he said, “I have no special gift. I am only passionately curious.” There it is. Passion and curiosity.
The Church should be the most curious, imaginative, creative place on the planet. After all, the Spirit of the Creator lives within the people of God.
Look around. We need answers and solutions. We need breakout pathways leading us into a different future. Breaking free from worn out cycles of futility and defeat, we aspire to destiny.
God help us to increase our passion to discover and grow. If we seek to follow Jesus, why should we be satisfied with what a fallen world system offers us? I believe Jesus has the best information for our lives. If we will access it.
Holy curiosity … never stop questioning
Parents of toddlers sometimes laugh at their questions, but they always welcome them. Imperfect parents delight in the growth and development of their children.
It’s said that the highest form of learning is self-discovery which is question-based.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. — Albert Einstein
There it is again. This time it’s holiness and curiosity. The dimensions of Christ’s Person—the limitless dimensions of His realm—are worthy of a holy curiosity. Jesus said if we’re to experience His realm, we’ll have to become like children.
“The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know” (Paul in 1 Corinthians 8).
Ultimately, it’s revelation from the Father above which renews the spirit of our minds, bringing transformation and creativity. The Spirit of the Creator will lead us into truth. Into Ultimate Reality. Let’s give ourselves permission to exercise a sanctified imagination, a holy curiosity.
Q4U: Will you give yourself permission to exercise a holy curiosity as you seek for answers and solutions? Will you look to the Spirit of the Creator?
