I don’t know how accurate this is, but I recently read that in an average day, a four-year-old will ask 437 questions.  Having taught kindergarten for a number of years, I can believe it.  Asking questions is how we learn and a four-year-old has a mind like a sponge.  Their aim is to get as much information into that brain as they can.

    Sometimes parents wish their children would stop asking questions, especially the infamous ‘Why?’.  Questions can become an annoyance, but that is how we learn.

    That’s also how God wants us to learn.  He wants us to read His Word and pray, but He also wants us to ask questions.  If we are to gain wisdom from God, we need to ask Him questions.  The answer may not always come as we expect or hope, but the answer that He feels we need will come.

    We are told in James 1:5, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” (KJV)  Do you need knowledge about a certain thing?  Do you need wisdom from God?  Ask Him and he will supply the wisdom you need.
