A Simple Step Toward Sanity
I’m guessing many of us agree with this statement: This world is out of control and it’s driving me crazy!  Control is something we crave.  When we lose control, we can easily feel lost and hopeless.  However, maybe we should consider the possibility God has given us all the control we need.
We would like to control others – what they say, how they behave, what they think, etc.  We want them to get their act together, thinking that will solve things.  God has a different plan.
God holds us responsible for how we treat ourselves and how we treat others.*  While we get riled up about all the things we can’t control, God encourages us to do these simple things we can control:
  • Treat yourself well.  Don’t condemn yourself for the things you’ve asked God to forgive.  Don’t be slack in doing the good things He has asked you to do.  Make wise self-care choices.
  • Treat others with love and respect.  Romans 12:18 says, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.”  We can respond graciously to others while still speaking the truth.  No one can make us speak or behave badly. 
God will never hold us responsible for how others treat us, how others treat others, and how others treat themselves.*  Don’t worry about them.  If we cast off our own sin, along with the unhelpful burdens we tend to cling to, we can look to Jesus fully and embrace the hope he sets before us as we are becoming more like Him.
So let’s give up trying to control others.  We will find more peace if we focus daily on treating ourselves well while choosing to do the same for others.
