Learning to say, "No"

Here's some good advice, complete with a football illustration, from Chaille's Weblogs. I couldn't find a permalink, but the post is called "Sometimes the Best Play Is to Throw the Ball Away":
Jesus didn't do everything. He knew how to walk away from a bad play. He knew when not to act or take things into His own hands. It can be real easy to think that everything rests on our shoulders. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to let something go and trust that it will work out.

We can't be everywhere all the time. We can't do everything. We can't fix all of the problems in the world around us. Why then is it easy to fall into this way of thinking? Even Jesus did not do fix everything He walked away from legitimate need at times. Jesus knew how to do only what He saw God calling Him to do.
Preachers, are we listening?
