Growing up, I was most certainly my father's son. I asked so many questions that my questions had questions. I've found that the more I asked, the more I knew.
Somewhere along our life though we stop...asking questions. "They might think I'm dumb" or "I'll just look it up later" are common quotes we tell ourselves. We might even look around the room to see if anyone else has a confused look on their face.
When I was a kid I asked tons and tons of questions. I also noticed that I was willing to listen as a kid. As an adult it become easy to sink in our assumptions and live by them alone.
Proverbs 1:5 tells us, "let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance."
These are certainly words to live by. Not only must we listen, but add to their learning. I was once told that as soon as you stop learning, you stop leading. As Christians, whether you're in middle school, or a college graduate, our responsibility is to lead and we can't effectively do this if we're not willing to learn. I challenge you to ask a few more questions this week and listen a little more. You may just learn something.
