Ask the Right Question

Paul Capalbo tells about a class of first-graders touring their local newspaper. They were captivated by the noisy operation of the enormous printing press, churning out the daily paper. Leading the children to a quieter area the guide asked if anyone had questions. One girl asked: "Why do cats and dogs fight?"

A fair question, but not exactly relevant.

Many times we ask the wrong question. That may be one reason we don’t get answers. We ask: What is God doing to me? Why did God do this? When the best question is: What does God want me to do?
