I want to think like a 5 year old

January 22, 2007

I have been thinking of questions. Who asks lots of questions? Young children. I want to be like them. Not only do they ask a lot of questions, but they often ask good questions, and hard questions…..questions that start with WHY.

For the past few days I have been asking myself that question. Why? Why do I do what I do? Why do I believe what I believe? Why am I choosing this or that? Why do I desire or hope for something? Why do I care?

I want to be intentional about all I do. I want it to matter, not to me, but to someone else, in some bigger way. I don’t want to be recognized for it, I just want my time, energy, effort, thoughts, and relationships to mean something. Something real, not something that is meaningful only to me.

I am going to start asking “why” more, especially about ministry and relationships with others. Will it help me be more focused and intentional? Will it separate what is needed from what is liked or desired? Will it teach me more about what really matters in life?
