Somebody Else's Thoughts on Fixing Things

A. K. M. Adam has an interesting post up about, well, I'm not sure how to describe it, I guess about the dangers in trying to fix problems, namely that we can never (and thus should never assume that we can) perfectly fix any system, and that ultimately we can only affect positive changes by not relying on our own abilities to fix them but rather by relying on grace. It's not a finished statement on anything, but more a beginning apparently. Anyway, I've heard people say similar things before, but this one sort of just hit me in the right way at the right time. I am one of those people who is especially prone to assuming I can fix things, no matter what (even when I frequently don't have a clue how to do so), so I found it esepecially relevant. (And, hey, it even references MacGyver, though you will have to forgive his not-entirely-accurate description of the concept, apparently he doesn't watch it.)
