Luke 20:27-38
We Don’t Have All the Answers

By Lois Parker Edstrom

When we have a question we like to find an answer that satisfies us, but sometimes we have not grown enough to understand the answer. This happens to adults as well as children.

When you were a toddler you may have been too young to understand why your parents did not want you to go out into the road. You were too young to understand the danger of speeding cars.

Even now you may wonder why your parents choose an early bedtime for you and why they are concerned that you eat good food. You may not fully understand that your parents are trying to provide you with the things that help you grow strong and healthy.

In the Bible we read a story in which the people of that time asked Jesus about what it would be like in heaven. Jesus gave them an answer, but the people of that time and those of us today have not grown enough to understand the answer. He said that those in heaven “they are like the angels, and are children of God…” (20:36).

We can think about what it would be like to be an angel, but we really can’t understand that fully because we have more growing to do. Jesus tells us that heaven will be different from what we know now. We must trust Jesus, as we would trust a loving father or a loving mother, to know what is best for us. We don’t have answers as to what it will be like in heaven. We only know that our needs will be met, we will be happy, and we will be with God.
