Titus 3:9 KJV
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
When I was a little kid, my mum used to avoid many of the questions I asked. She claimed I asked too many foolish questions. 😊
I would want to know why fowls don’t pee (urinate), why cats had lots of fur, etc, etc, etc. After Sunday school, I once asked my mum whose God’s parents were, and she responded by asking why I didn’t ask my Sunday school teacher.
Today, I know some the questions I asked were very difficult to answer, hence my mum’s reaction to them. But indeed, some of them were foolish. Paul the apostle didn’t want Titus to entertain questions on genealogies that wouldn’t have an impact on the growth of Cretans’ faith; questions that would sustain arguments and retard progress.
Indeed it is necessary to know, so it is important to ask questions. But at a certain stage in your ministry/relationship with God, you need to know what you don’t need to waste time on. Avoid them as well, they won’t un-make you.
Have a blessed day.
