Ever Wonder Why...?

There are mysteries in life.

Some are light-hearted, such as:

  • Ever wonder why the sun lightens our hair but darkens our skin?
  • Ever wonder why you never see the headline “Psychic Wins Lottery”?
  • Why is “abbreviated” such a long word?
  • Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
  • Why isn’t there mouse-flavored cat food?
  • Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
  • You know that indestructible black box they use on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff?

    Other mysteries are more serious. What is the meaning of life? Why do good people suffer?

    Suggested applications:

  • We can rest assured that our great God knows the answer to all of life’s questions. Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! Romans 11:33
  • When we’re going through a hard time, we can trust that God has a good plan for us. "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
