Questions Look Dangerous

he looks dangerous cartoon by nakedpastor david hayward

A couple are driving down the road. A question mark is on the side of the road hitchhiking. The woman says to the man driving, "Don't stop. He looks dangerous!"

Stopping to pick up questions and invite it into your space is dangerous.

I had a friend who picked up a hitchhiker. The hitchhiker held him at knifepoint, stole all his stuff and his car and left him on the side of the road.

I'm not talking about that kind of dangerous.

I'm talking about how questions can make every map you've ever trusted seem antiquated and not so accurate.

They might suggest you turn off the well-established route and take a better way and make you feel, for a while, maybe a long while, that you're absolutely and hopelessly lost.

In fact, they just might take over the wheel and invite all his friends in too.

I claim this makes for a life of risk and adventure.

But it's also the road to wisdom.

And that's always dangerous.
