How Secure Are You?
Everyone wants to feel secure, whether riding a horse, driving an automobile, or even walking. Everyone also wants to feel a sense of security in regard to his religion, home, business, and social activities.
When anything is said to be secure, we think of it as being so safe that failure, loss, misfortune, or accident is impossible. But if security is sought in matter, one can no longer feel secure. This is aptly illustrated in Jesus' parable of the rich man who planned to erect larger barns to hold his material wealth and to live on it. His human planning, however failed; for we read in Luke (12: 20), "God said unto him. Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?"
From the study of the Bible in the light of Christian Science, we learn that true security does not lie in houses and barns, in stocks and bonds, but in our understanding of God and of man's relationship to Him as His spiritual reflection and of what constitutes true supply. It seems strange that we should have groped so long in the darkness and uncertainty of mortal ways when all the time God, Principle, Mind, Love, has been right at hand.
