Who Do You Trust? The Wisdom of Proverbs
Life poses many questions. And when painful things happen, our questions reveal a lot about us.
When bad things happen psychologically we have an immediate need to know what we are dealing with. So we ask lots of “What?” oriented questions. What happened? When? Where? Then we ask “Why?” Why would someone do that? If God is in control, why would this happen? But if we’re not careful we stop there. We forget to ask the “Who” question. Who do I trust? Trust in the Lord, advises Proverbs, not your own understanding. The “What?” and the “Why?” never satisfy the soul, but the “Who?” does.
