It’s amusing how much control we think we have. Some people even refer to themselves (or have others refer to them as such behind their backs) as control-freaks. They must be in control of every situation and detail, or they aren’t happy. Most of us like to feel in control of our time, our finances, and our entertainment. In the grand scheme of things, this would be hilarious if it weren’t so sad. As human beings, we’re in control of almost nothing.
We can’t control the weather, the economy, or the government. We can’t control how fast we fall asleep, how tall or short we are, or one bit of our DNA. I submit the only things we control are our faith, our attitude, our outlook, and our actions. That’s it! It may not seem like a lot, but if we make wise decisions in these four areas, we will live an amazing life, just as God intends for us.
