Twitter Rant: Why

Reading Job 38-40

Sure it was a bit much of Job to want to state his case to God but I feel him

Sometimes things are so rough that we can't get past asking "why".

“Why” is such a problematic yet beautiful question. It is the wellspring of much suffering, but also much creativity and growth.

We must never stop asking why, but we must also recognize the futility of demanding an answer.

Answers come when we have born them through fruitful action and perseverance.

Focusing on "why" blinds us to the present. It is a question shackled in the past or future.
