If we were honest, most of us would probably admit that there are some areas in life where we feel insecure.
Maybe you suffer emotional insecurity.
Or financial insecurity. You look at the economy, the unemployment rates, the failing banks. And it’s hard to feel very secure financially.
Or physical insecurity. Kids are bullied at school. Adults are intimidated at work. And every evening when we turn on the local news, it doesn’t help.
You wonder “How safe am I? Is my home secure? Maybe you’ve invested in a home security system.
I had to face this issue a couple years ago when Karis was two and she first heard the story of the Three Little Pigs. I had to assure her that we don’t have wolves in central Indiana. But that wasn’t convincing. She pointed out that they could come from somewhere else. And she had a good point.
So then I decided I’d convince her that wolves don't go around blowing air out of their mouths especially at houses. But of course she didn’t believe that, because she had heard the story. She’d seen it in a book.
So finally I took her outside and showed her the brick facade on the front of our garage. And it worked. She was so relieved. She could finally sleep at night. She finally felt a sense of security.
What are the times in your life when you feel the most vulnerable, the most insecure?
Where do we find that security?
