Leading Questions

Leading Questions


Not every question has an easy or obvious answer. Then again, sometimes the answer is so obvious that everyone knows it…except when they really don’t! And once in a while a question isn’t even designed looking for an answer to be spoken out loud. It’s a rhetorical device meant to cause deep reflection about something vitally important to know.

In this short series to end the summer we’re going to have fun with some of a couple of these questions where they pop up in the Old Testament and the answers aren’t always so obvious…at least to some people. But with every leading question we look at comes a tremendous learning opportunity for us because behind every question is a story in which we can find ourselves too. God loves to teach us his ways through the questions that are couched in these stories from the Old Testament.

Who has understood the mind of the LORD, or instructed him as his counselor? (Isaiah 40:13)

Is the LORD’s arm too short?

When Moses doubted God’s ability to provide, the LORD God himself actually asked this question. Do we feel like it’s all up to us? Trust God! Numbers 11
