Finding greater certainty

Originally printed in The Christian Science Monitor, December 11, 2014.

The December 1 “Monitor’s View” on CSmonitor.com, “Spotting the inviolate in oil price volatility,” got me thinking not only about the uncertainty relating to oil price fluctuations—and how they affect people and nations—but about how to experience certainty in an unstable world. The editorial says that in the face of oil price changes, “once again, the Great Sorting is really between those who use uncertainty to create a better world and those who succumb to it like a game of chance.” For nations to respond to uncertainty with constructive action—such as the pursuit of new energy options—is progressive.

But how do you actually come to feel stability and experience it when fluctuation seems the norm? Christ Jesus said that those who heard and practiced his teachings were like “a wise man, which built his house upon a rock,” and neither floods nor winds could bring it down (see Matthew 7:24, 25).
