A cockroach cannot be taught to understand the physics of how a cell phone works!
Similarly, when George Washington Carver (himself brilliant) asked the meaning of the universe, he heard God answer, “little man, your brain is too small.”
When Job asked God to explain his intense suffering, the Bible tells us that God didn’t answer directly. Instead, God asked if Job could control nature (including perhaps the crocodile!).
Job got the point: There are things that are beyond human capacity to control/understand. One of these is the existence of suffering and evil.
Sometimes it is best to simply admit, “I don’t know.”
Coffee/tea thought: I think it pleases God deeply when his children, plagued by struggles and questions, choose to “stop analyzing” and continue to trust God’s character of goodness and power and wisdom.
