The curiosity of three-year olds’ seems endless. Dating myself, I compare their questioning parents with repetitious “Why?” to a record hanging up on a turntable. Listeners heard the same thing over and over. When in the why stage, children query every statement. I often ask God why. He has asked His people, “Why?”
“So now, residents of Jerusalem and men of Judah, please judge between Me and my vineyard. What more could I have done for My vineyard than I did? Why, when I expected a yield of good grapes, did it yield worthless grapes (Isaiah 5:3-4 HCS)?” He questioned why; He tells us whom the vineyard represents.
“For the vineyard of the LORD of Hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah, the plant He delighted in. He looked for justice but saw injustice, for righteousness, but heard cries of wretchedness (Isaiah 5:7 HCS).” Why should I be fruitful? Why am I a branch in the vine? I ask why. Jesus answers.
“My Father is glorified by this: that you produce much fruit and prove to be my disciples(John 15:8 HCS)."
