Step back, you’ll only mess things up

More than a few times I tried to “fix” something when I was a wee lad only to hear my father say something like, “step back son, if we leave it that way you’ll blow-up the house.” I’m thankful for those life-lessons along the way. Harder still is when the Lord presents us with a situation to which our knee-jerk response is to try and “fix” it. When James Montgomery Boice informed his congregation (May 7, 2000) that he had liver cancer he counseled them along these lines:

“If God does something in your life, would you change it? If you’d change it, you’d make it worse. It wouldn’t be good. So that’s the way we want to accept it and move forward, and who knows what God will do?”
