A solid answer to everything is not necessary. Blurry concepts influence one to focus, but postulated clarity influences arrogance (Criss Jami, poet and essayist).

We would all like to get concrete answers to our questions, and we’ve discovered that it doesn’t often happen. Jami gives us an interesting slant on those unanswered concerns. When the response is somewhat uncertain, it does demand a more careful, focused search for the solution. Positive, “for sure” answers, as he suggests, may be prideful but not helpful.

Anyone who claims to know all the answers doesn’t really know very much (1 Corinthians 8:2).

And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it (1 Peter 3:15).
