Cease to try to govern the world

“Let us beware of giving way to over-anxiety about the course of events around us, as if we knew better than the King of kings what time relief should come. ‘Cease, Philip, to try to govern the world,’ was a frequent saying of Luther to an anxious friend. It was a saying full of wisdom.”

J.C. Ryle, Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Luke 2:1-7
