“Curiosity is such a human thing. It is innate in the way that we’re wired to live and survive in the world. As you start thinking about curiosity, children often come to mind. In their early years, kids ask between 300-400 questions a day and that number starts to drop off around age 4. The reason they ask so many questions is that they are just plopped down in a world that is strange and difficult to understand, and they are trying to make sense of their environment.

As human beings, asking questions is how we do anything. Everything we do is based on being curious and wondering. Jesus is drawing out the true deep humanity that God built into us. And he is inviting us to live in a new kingdom, Jesus’s kingdom that is not something we’re used to. It’s a kingdom that has different priorities and expectations, different permissions, and a different reality altogether. Curiosity has to be part of that work because we need to figure out what sort of world Jesus is bringing us into.”
