Why did God make the sky blue? Why do we have to go to school? Why do people not fly and birds do? The list of WHY’s from small children could go on and on. Every “why” question deserves a good answer or else the question will be asked again.. “Just because” does not satisfy very often.

Many people ask God, “Why?” Why did this happen?  Why did it have to happen to us? These thoughts remind us of Job, who asked, “Why died I not from the womb? Why did I not give up the ghost when my mother bare me? Why did the knees receive me? Or why the breasts, that I should suck?” (Job 3:11,12).

Others will ask God, “Why should I be baptized?”  “Why do I have to worship you more than once a week?” “Why do you not take away the evil in this world?”  “Why did you choose the church of Christ as the church in which to place save people?”

What God has revealed is important, not what He has not revealed (Deut. 29:29). The will of God needs careful and serious consideration. We do not really need to know “Why?” Every individual must respond to the wishes, desires, and instructions of God without questioning His commands. He is the creator. We are the created. Responding to Him in faith is what we should do. We should change our “Why?” to “What?”. What will you have me to do? (Acts 9:6). We need to read God’s will and obey it without questioning “WHY?”
