“The opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty” – Anne Lamott

We need to stop treating doubt  like it is the enemy of faith. Questions need to be asked by us to make faith our own. Doubt is not deadly to faith, but silence is.

Pretending that we have to be certain about everything prevents us from asking those tough questions. But it is those tough questions that get answered that eventually turns those doubts into the strongest anchors to our faith.

Instead of pretending to be certain about everything, let us encourage questions. And when you don’t know the answer, one of the best responses you can give is “I don’t know, but lets find out together”.
