The Relentless Why  (CL)

Little kids possess an insatiable need to ask the question why.

“You need to eat your vegetables.” “Why?”

“Because they’re good for you.” “Why?”

“Because they have lots of vitamins.” “Why?”

“Because God made them to help us stay healthy.” “Why?” And so on… 

Interesting discoveries await when you rekindle that childlike habit and ask why relentlessly as you read what people do and say in a Bible story.
