Questioning the Lord

There is nothing wrong with questioning the Lord. Mary did it at the Annunciation. The Apostles frequently questioned Jesus. It is the attitude with which we question that is important. The Sadducees no longer dared to question the Lord because their pride had led them to challenge him, to try and get the better of him. Mary and the Apostles questioned him humbly, trying to better understand what God was asking of them. God is delighted to receive our humble questions, no matter what they might be. Are we prepared, though, to accept his answer?
