What Do You Do When You Do Not Understand?

To read the Bible in a year, read John 6:45-71.
It seems that everyone responds differently to the Lord when they do not understand what He has said, why He has said it, or what He has done. When Jesus spoke of the need for us to eat His flesh and to drink His blood, this happened, “Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, ‘This is a hard saying; who can understand it?'” (John 6:60). They could not understand the meaning of His saying, so they were offended (v. 61), did not believe Him (v. 64), and left Him (v. 66).
What do you do when you do not understand something that the Lord has spoken? Do you become angry with Him? Do you give it some time until you can understand Him? What do you do?
