DEVOTION BY MARK FUGATE
Questions and Answers
I’ve always had a running list of questions that I ponder when I can’t sleep (which is maybe why I can’t sleep). Here’s a sample.
- – How important does a person have to be before hey are considered assassinated instead of just plain murdered?
Q– If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in the boat?
Q– Why don’t you ever see the headline – Psychic wins lottery?
Q– Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Q– How come when you blow in a dog’s face he gets mad, but when you take him for car ride he sticks his head out the window?
Q– If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares why is there a song about him?
Q– Why can’t women put on their mascara with their mouths closed?
Q– If they call it Tourist season – why can’t we shoot them?
Q– Why do they put Braille dots on the key pad of the drive up ATM?
I don’t know the answers to those questions but the questions in life that really matter can be answered. The Word of God has the answers to the important questions, the essential questions, the questions that we need to ask. Paul wrote the young preacher Timothy and said….
- 2 Tim. 3:16 – All Scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.
We should be asking these questions because unlike my previous list they have answers.
Q– Is there life after death?
Q– Are Heaven and Hell real places?
Q– Can I find any lasting peace in this life?
Q– How can I know I am saved?
Q– Can grace really reach someone like me?
If it’s a question that really matters – it has an answer, it’s found in your Bible.
