We'll see

There's a little boy and on his 14th birthday he gets a horse... and everybody in the village says, "how wonderful. the boy got a horse" And the Zen master says, "we'll see." Two years later The boy falls off the horse, breaks his leg, and everyone in the village says, "how terrible." And the Zen master says, "We'll see." Then, a war breaks out and all the young men have to go off and fight... except the boy can't cause his legs all messed up. and everybody in the village says, "How wonderful." Now the Zen master says, "We'll see."

I absolutely loved the movie Charlie Wilson's War. My favorite part from it was when Philip Seymour Hoffman's character (Gust Avrakotos) gives the little story of the Zen master. Honestly that is how I think we need to view whatever happens in today's election: we'll see. Too often we get overly excited or depressed about something without knowing what the future will look like. So before you get yourself worked up because your candidate won or lost, remember to say "we'll see" and trust that God remains in control.
