The great basketball coach John Wooden, who was also an outspoken Christian, once said, “Don’t let what you can’t do interfere with what you can do.”
Many people might be focused on what they can’t do during this time when we are staying at home to try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We can’t: go to the movies, attend church, watch current sports on television, mingle with friends, go to church, etc.
Let’s take the advice of the old coach and focus on what we can do. We can: pray, read the Bible, sing to the Lord, phone a friend, take a walk…well, you take over. Create a list of the positive things you can do during these unusual times. Then do them!
“…Make the most of every opportunity.”—Colossians 4:5.
