Curiosity and Curious

Curiosity (n); curious (adj): eagerness to learn; inquisitive

A case can be made that curiosity and curious are synonyms—the same word—like Siamese twins.

But may I present the possibility that curious is what emerges in the human heart when finally stimulated to pay attention. Curiosity, on the other hand, is something we nurture in ourselves, to expose subjects of interest, even when others are convinced that the whole planet is boring.

If I wait to pursue only the things that make me curious, I will unfortunately be at the mercy of all the panderers, pundits, preachers and politicians.

But if I allow curiosity to grow in me, I am naturally asking to be given, seeking to find and knocking so the door will be opened.

Life is a curious thing; it’s best to arrive with curiosity.

Always beware those who are positive there is nothing more to be revealed.

Ignore the masses who insist that everything that needs to be known is already known.

For here’s the truth:

Some people want to meet God because they desire to worship him, praise him and thank him for salvation and eternal life.

My curiosity is stronger.

I want to meet God because I would love to quiz him on his management style.
