When I was reading this post, I thought about the difficult questions children often ask us. Children ask many, many things but some questions are easier to answer than others. I think that the two main difficult areas for most people are death and sex. But for me, it is definitely death. With my daughter, I have never lied or tried to whitewash facts. She is seven now and can understand things better now than when she was three and started asking questions about death. But I have always talked about death with her in a natural way and she attends wakes and funerals, though some people criticize me for that. She goes to nursing homes with me, she just doesn't go to the hospital because she's not allowed in there, and she has already seen a dead body. So death is not a taboo subject among us. The difficult part comes when she asks me why do good and/or young people die, why doesn't God heal everyone if He is a God that heals. As adults, we also ask these questions and I know I have spent a great part of my adult life searching for answers everywhere. When I became a born-again Christian, I realized that there are certain things that I cannot understand, but I trust that God is in control and knows what is best for us. «Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?» (Proverbs 20:24).
Now tell me about the difficult questions you have been asked and how you dealt with them.
