So, what questions are you asking?
Most people are familiar with the story of Jesus being “lost” as a child while his parents were on their way home from Jerusalem after the Passover. He was 12 years old and his parents assumed he was just walking with other family or friends, which would of been common. When they couldn’t find him that evening they went back to Jerusalem to search for him. Three days later (I bet Mary was furious) they discovered him in the Temple and Luke 2:46 says this about what Jesus was doing:
“…sitting among the religious teachers, listening to them and ASKING QUESTIONS.”
Now, I’m not being sacrilegious at all when I say this; I’m not sure how the whole Fully God/Fully man thing worked. I FULLY believe that Jesus was FULLY God and FULLY man! I just don’t know at 12 years old how that all played out. My opinion is that He was always fully God and fully man. He had to be or He never was…in my opinion. Here’s why that’s important. Why was He asking questions?
I don’t know if this is the case or not, but the last time I read through that passage the fact that He asked questions struck me. Could He, even at 12 years old, been leaving an example to follow? Crazy, I know. But God inspired the writer to record that detail of the childhood of Jesus. Could it be that as leaders, we need to be asking the right questions. That’s at least what God challenged my heart with. So, what questions are you asking?
Leaders don’t have all the answers, they are just asking the right questions.
