Bible Text: 
James 1:19-25


A good deal of what messes with our emotional climate control is the frustration we experience when we confuse what we cannot control with what we can.

What can we control?
Ourselves
What can we not control?
Everything else.
What does this have to do with crazy-making relationships?
People are the way they are, not the way I want them to be.

When we realize that we are not in the business of controlling everyone else, then perhaps we can lower our own internal pressure and simply share the life we have with those nearby.
