People challenge God. So God challenges the people and they respond with “we do not know.” And that will always be the outcome when we approach God in this manner.
No matter how much we may know, or want to know, it is arrogant to come to God demanding an answer. This assumes we know more than God. That we have as great a capacity to understand as God. Or maybe more.
But this is a limited understanding of God. For God is so great and we are not. To lose this perspective is to begin to not see God and to assume ourselves to be God. Adam and Eve all over again.
Let us approach God today from the end of today’s Gospel with the heart of “we do not know.” As we pray to God let us remind ourselves that relative to God we know nothing. God is the truth and knowledge. Only by God’s grace can we begin to understand.
