Thomas the Apostle

Good ol’ doubting Thomas. That’s what he’s most famous for, doubting the other apostles when they said Christ had risen and then seeing Christ and placing his fingers in the wounds of Christ and believing. It was also he who, at the Last Supper, pleaded with Christ that they did not know the way to the place Christ was making for them and Christ responded that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

It seems that Thomas spent most of his time questioning. This isn’t a bad thing, though, nor even the most important part of his story. What’s important is what he did after he received answers: he went out in faith and confidence and ceased to question. That’s something we can all learn from and imitate. It is okay to question! But once we receive the answer, we must cease doubting and go forward boldly.
