Tuesday May 11th: Avoiding the Hard Questions

Not one of you has asked….

John 16:5-11

After Jesus told His disciples that He was going, He questioned, ‘Not one of you has asked “Where are you going?”’. He sounds wistful, disappointed and even a bit hurt by those closest to him who have been with Him all this time and are staying at a shallow, superficial level with Him whom they ought to be loving deeply. So it is with us too, sometimes we are not really piercing the surface with those in our lives who are closest to us. Are we doing so even with Jesus? Were the disciples consciously avoiding the hard questions? Are we? Are we too staying in the comfortable realm of feelings and not probing deeper when this is where Jesus wants us to go?
Jesus points the disciples to the Holy Spirit whose coming will right all these questions and cause them to come into the truth. We too need to allow the Holy Spirit to show us what Jesus wants us to see.
