We’re like little kids that make their parents crazy by asking one question over and over again: Are we there yet? I honestly think that question reveals something genetically wired into the human psyche. It comes as standard. And while we may stop pestering our parents, we never outgrow our desire to know exactly where we’re headed and exactly when we’ll get there. We want a complete itinerary with everything mapped out. What I’m trying to saying in a nice way is this: We’re control freaks. But faith involves a loss of control. Following Christ is letting Jesus take the wheel.
