Earlier I wrote a post about how, “I don’t know,” is always a lie. For awhile, whenever my kids would tell me, “I don’t know.” I would ask them, “If you did know, what would you say?” They started revolting a little, so I stopped asking the question as often. Then the other day, my son asked me a question. Honestly, I wasn’t paying very close attention, but it was some informational question that I didn’t know the actual answer to. When I nonchalantly told him, “I don’t know.” He asked, with a smile on his face, “If you did know, what would you say?” I laughed and totally guessed the answer, and told him I was totally guessing.
We all have wisdom inside of us, and this is a way to get it out. What problem are you trying to solve, and you just can’t seem to find the answer to? If you knew the answer, what would it be?
