Curiosity is such a childish word, right?
Not so fast. Just because we grow up doesnt mean we should lose our wonder at the world, or the people around us. When we do, we lose so much because curious is how God made us to be.
Without curiosity a Christians life is incomplete. His relationship with God is incomplete. His connections to others are incomplete. He doesnt know how to interact with the world around himpolitics, media, art, entertainment, science, and so much more simply fly past or overwhelm him. Without curiosity he can never discover deep things, deep connections God tucked below the banal surface of life.
Author Barnabas Piper explores what curiosity is, and how it affects relationships. What if people so sought to learn about each other that the most unlikely people became advocates and friends?
It would be transformative, and it would stem from curiosity.
