To be secure, let's see, to be free from danger, risk, care, or anxiety. To be safe with all needs being met. To faithfully avoid poverty by being free from want or financial care. To be secure. To live in a spirit of security. It seems like such a simple thing until you really think about it or until you loose some feature of security for your own life.
Several years ago my brother was incarcerated in a federal prison in Mexico. He was 'securely' confined in his setting but he was far from being safe and secure. In fact, his secure setting created a very dangerous environment. We all long to be safe and secure even though we know that we will never live with no cares in the world. But we can work to limit the areas of concern that we may encounter.
Security. A couple of weeks ago I had an interesting conversation with a friend and co-worker about food security. It is a new concept to many. Most of us wake up in the morning with little concern about daily food. However, a fairly large percentage of people around the world wake up each day with thoughts of food security on their minds and hearts.
What could you do today to help the people around you feel secure? And how wide would you be willing to draw that circle?
