LESSONS FROM MY DAD: Don’t worry about the stuff you can’t control



EDITOR’S NOTE: My dad, a long-time pastor and police chaplain, passed in 2015. To keep his words alive, I wanted to share some of his posts here. 

By Rev. Ken Pugh

From a Nov. 21, 2014 Facebook post 

Adding 18 inches to your height by simply thinking about it is impossible… if that were possible, I am sure that we would have great height on many of our local basketball teams… Matthew 6:27 tells us that we waste a lot of time worrying being over matters over which we have no control… Our primary duty in this life is “to seek first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).”
