Children tend to always be bursting with questions. It seems, however, that the older we get, the fewer questions we ask. I've been thinking about that a lot these past few weeks.
Questions are so important! It is through question asking that we are able to learn. I think the key to progression and growth is getting back this childlike curiosity. Hopefully we can all admit that we don't know everything, hopefully that drives and inspires us to increase our knowledge.
What keeps us from asking more questions? This could be answered in 101 ways. In my opinion, one of the big ones would be pride. In the act of questioning, we have to humble ourselves and admit that we do not know.
"For until you can admit what you don't yet know, it's virtually impossible to learn what you need to."
My life was changed because a young boy in 1820 had a question. This young boy was Joseph Smith. And this simple question led to the translation of the Book of Mormon and the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ.
May we all follow his example and the advice given in chapter one, verse five of the Book of James in the New Testament-
'If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.'
Ps. If you'd like to read more about Joseph Smith's question and answer you can read his account here:
