That’s a Good Question

Talking heads, commentators and political-types are in the bad habit of prefacing their remarks to the facilitator with, “That’s a good question.” I’m never sure if they are using the phrase to compliment the facilitator, or if they use the pause as a way to collect their thoughts before answering. I’m reminded of God’s questions to Adam and Eve in the garden and it occurs to me that God could ask these same questions to believers today, “Where are you? Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from? What is this you have done” (Gen 3:9-13 NIV)? I can image our stalling to collect our thoughts and saying, “That’s a good question.”
