So Moses thought, I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up? Exodus 3:3
Curiosity may have “killed a cat” but it’s also changed the world and how I see it. Curiosity beckons me to travel, to deliver the country to you via photos and travel logs. Can you imagine how the world will be if no one had been “curious” enough to explore the unknown? To tap into the secrets of electricity, study birds in flight to get men to fly, or study human anatomy in order to promote health.
Curiosity, though it sometimes gets us in trouble, is a gift God has put into our hearts. One of the signs of a healthy baby is their curiosity. They’re innocent investigators, pure inquirers and scientists without any prior training. They respond to an innate urge to know just for the sake of knowing. Much like Moses’ curiosity got the best of him and landed him at a holy spot where God was waiting and where his great ministry was born.
Are you spiritually curious? Do you ask questions or accept your world as it is? Do you accept the situations in your life as fixtures or do you seek to find what the will of God is concerning them? If a bush was burning around you like Moses saw, would you ignore it?
Since curiosity is a gift from God, it should be used. I challenge you to develop the habit of investigating. Look deeper into things. Ask questions. Challenge conventions and norms. Investigate claims. Open your mind wide. There is a whole lot you do not know yet that God wants to show you and sometimes it is what you feel you know already that becomes your greatest hindrance. God has created a lot in nature and put a lot in His word and other people that your whole life will not be enough to explore them. So remain like a little child. Not gullible but curious. Retain your fascination about the things God has done and is doing. Then just like Moses, you may just meet God and your calling at the end of the trail of one of your quests.
