One person trying to control another;
One bank trying to control another;
One country trying to control another.
We try to control the weather (cloud seeding, stopping global warming, etc.). We try to control the economy (the Fed raising or lowering interest rates in order to stave off a recession). We will try anything, just to see if it will work, and it rarely does the way we want it to. If things do work, it is only until another problem comes up. And at the end of the day, all of the same problems are out there.
And it creates enemies of friends. At some point, although we may choose to ignore the behaviors of others, there will come a point when the volcano blows. Because, once you become obsessed with controlling others, there is never enough. The controller will continue to push for more and more in their thirst to quench their own desires. You see control isn't about you, it's about them.
Jesus said, “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. And yet i tell you even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these."
God is in control. We cannot fight that, and we cannot win this battle with control. Our Heavenly Father never intended for us to.
Life is a lot easier and happier without it.
