Was Thomas’ doubt born of healthy skepticism? Of curiosity and a
desire to learn? Or did his doubt emerge from cynicism, a dismissive
denial? If it was the latter, then Thomas wasn’t going to get far in
making a new road with Christ. If he had already concluded Jesus was
crazy and his way was not the way, then Thomas was going to miss
out. The wisest among us are those who know how much we don’t
know, are open to being proven wrong and open to the epiphanies
that await down Christ’s strange and wondrous new road.
Lord, we believe. Help us in our unbelief. May our doubt not be
a closed denial but an open curiosity towards a new road and
new discovery. Amen.
