Life is filled with questions, but none more difficult or puzzling than the "why" question.

Why do bad things happen to good people?

Why does this trial last so long?

Why can't I have life as easy as others seem to have it?

Why doesn't God answer my prayer now?

Why am I not as gifted or blessed as others?

Why? Why? Why?

Little ones ask why, and so do teens. But adults struggle with this question too.

Why we do things is another dimension to the "why" question. I once read that why we do something is far more important than how to do it. The person who knows how will always be servant to the one that knows why. If we don't know why we do something then we we eventually lose interest, purpose, and passion. Why we do things is important.

Why do we eat? Why do we breathe? Why do we read the Bible and pray to God? Why do we honor and keep His Laws? Why do we work? Why do we do certain tasks?

Silly question. Why do we bathe, brush our teeth, or put on clean clothes?

Why do we put gas in our cars, or watch where we're going?

Obviously to some of the "why" questions there are easy, quick answers, but to other "why" questions there may be a long wait.

Here is a good quote:

Patience is the champion of wisdom-St. Augustine.


Be patient.
