Out of Control

by triunebill


Stanley Hauerwas writes in his memoir, Hannah’s Child, “…following Jesus means you cannot anticipate or ensure results. Learning to live out of control, learning to live without trying to force contingency into conformity because of our desperate need for security, I take to be a resource for discovering alternatives that would otherwise not be present.”

To understand that we are indeed not in control forces us to ask who is in control. Recognizing Jesus requires humility does it not? Do we need to know humility and brokenness in order to come to know Jesus more fully?

What do you think?

Be blessed and be a blessing.
