Have you been a good steward this week?
Or have you wasted time and energy worrying and fretting about things you cannot control?
Too often we focus on things that are beyond our grasp while neglecting the work that we should be attending to. The fields are ripe for the harvest! There’s work to be done! Consider the well-known “Serenity Prayer” (originally by neo-orthodox theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, but commonly used today by Alcoholics Anonymous and in numerous Christian and non-Christian contexts):
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1,2 ESV)
