Who sinned? That’s our “Honest Question for Deeper Faith” today. It’s an honest question, but not a very helpful question.
The disciples asked that question: Who sinned? It’s a question seeking to place blame and find fault. Jesus asked a very different question: “What new thing is God doing here?”
How important it is to ask the right questions. Some questions seek to blame, to protect ourselves, to keep things under control. Other questions seek to open us up to new possibilities, to see what God is doing next. How do we move from blaming and fear to openness and hope? Well, we’ll start by trying to ask the right questions.
