Pastor Ken Connor's Corner: What can we control?

Pastor Ken Connor's Corner: What can we control?

For he makes the sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and the unjust. Matthew 5:45

We have little control over what comes our way, but we have total control over how we react.

Yes, I know that some things come our way based on the choices and decisions we make. However, much of what comes our way just happens, and we have to learn how to deal with it.

I can remember times as a kid in Colorado when we would be up in the mountains and a storm would pop up, dump its rain and be gone. Those generally happened in the afternoon and you learned to watch for them. Other times the sky would be clear and sunny, and it would just up and start raining without a cloud in the sky. Other storms you could watch form and know we would be in for several stormy days.

Bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. My only job is to deal with what happens to me. Not be angry when someone else gets sunshine, or rejoice when they get rain. I need to keep my focus on what God has for me to do today. Sunshine or storm!
