I’ve been asked to help provide some of the content for HighCallingBlogs.com (HCB). Sometimes I’ll submit a post of my own (written especially for HCB), and sometimes I’ll point readers to great material published by a High Calling Blogs member. The overall topic I’m focusing on is the high calling of raising family.This week, I was pleased to introduce a post written by Jennifer of Getting Down with Jesus, entitled “The Questions.”Jennifer snuggles down under a quilt with her seven-year-old daughter as they turn the pages of their Bibles. They explore the tough questions that come up when they read the scriptures. Instead of suppressing those questions or dismissing them with easy answers, she welcomes them, wrestling with them alongside her daughter. Together they seek to understand and try “to find peace in the pieces—knowing God fits it all together with wood and nails on Calvary.”Please visit today’s post at High Calling Blogs and click through to sit with Jennifer and her daughter. When I read her post, I was inspired to dig deeper than ever with my kids into the hardest, most confusing passages. As Jennifer warned, “Silent questions breed doubt.”She also pointed out that “[i]t’s easier to ask the questions when you have someone right beside you.”I want to be that person next to my kids. I want to be the one who welcomes the questions.
