Curiosity is essential to growth.
A little curiosity moves us deeper into the lives of the people around us. A little curiosity leads to opportunities we never knew existed. A little curiosity helps us understand our own strange emotions. A little curiosity, if focused on Jesus, will make us more like him.
"There's a difficult line to walk between what we need to know and what falls into the realm of mystery. Walking that line often wears on our nerves and causes incredible tension, and so we settle for easy answers. We stop asking questions. We give up. We begin to lose the one thing that fiercely energizes the transformation of our souls―something beautiful, poetic, joyful, and happily disruptive: curiosity."
When we make curiosity a spiritual practice, we open up to new ways of knowing God and knowing ourselves as well.
