Weightier and Weightier Questions

I study the Bible to find answers.  I have done so for many years now.

As time has gone by and I have grown in my faith, I find that I often leave my Bible study time without answers, per say, but with weightier and weightier questions that I did not even know to ask until I pondered the text.

This feels deliberate on God's part.

It is as if He leads me in a fascinating conversation over His word and then, when He decides our time is up, He folds His hands and says something like,

"That's all for now. Go. And ponder that further."

Of course, I want to protest, but then He smirks at me and I am comforted.

I know He will not leave me simple-minded.

He will not relent until I understand, truly, and until I can love Him with my whole mind.

  

The unfolding of your word gives light; It gives understanding to the simple. Psalm 119:130
