The expression “let the chips fall where they may” suggests allowing events to unfold without interference. One source indicates that the phrase originated in the woodcutting trade, implying that a woodcutter should focus on log cutting and not worry about where the small chips fall. Do you look at “the big picture” or do you get mired in the details? You can’t understand everything. And if you obsess over details, then you’ll likely worry and fall into sin (Matthew 6:25-30). Even if you see the big picture, remember that God sees the bigger picture (Psalm 139:16). Let God arrange the chips (Psalm 46:10).
