Dr. Jo Vitale invites us to step back from our own questions and instead focus on those Jesus asked during his time on earth. Jo Vitale explores what the inordinate amount of time Jesus spent in personal conversation tells us about the nature of God.
Asking questions is how you show that you care about somebody. That you’re not just interested in telling people who you are but you’re eager to know who they are.
Jesus knows better than to assume that the way things appear on the surface are going to accurately reflect a person’s true desires.
As you’ve had to pull back from life as usual over the last weeks perhaps that forced distance has given you some perspective on areas of life you realize you’ve just learned to live with. But in all honesty you know you’re not truly alive. Do you want to be well? If so, then let me commend the person who not only has the means but the desire to do something about it. In the words of Jesus, ‘it’s not the healthy who need a doctor but the sick.’ ‘I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.’
Make it personal:
What questions do you ask people to get to know them better?
Do you want to be well?
