Do you like to be in control of how things are done in your household or at your place of employment? Do you give detailed instructions every time you ask one of your children or co-workers to do something for you? Or do you just do everything yourself because “it’s easier” or “it takes less time”?
Are we really serving our family members or co-workers if we try to stay in control of all those tasks which should be used as life training lessons for them? Shouldn't we be giving them every opportunity to grow?
Perhaps it’s time to prayerfully consider if what we are doing is really serving those we love in the way that is best for them or controlling them so we can have it our way.
Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. I John 4:7
Heavenly Father, please show me how to let go of trying to control so that I can be more pleasing to You day by day. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
