Cultures, Values, Trends, Beliefs: roller coasters, anxieties, change, disbelief.
Stability can only be found in one place: God.
His word is unchanging, even through all the world’s changes.
Your soul needs roots, which cannot be ripped out; love, which will not fade; a rock, which is solid and stands firmly in place.
Faith, even so small as a “mustard seed”, is imperative.
Bottom line: you can have exactly what your soul needs.
It’s up to you. It’s a choice. It takes Jesus.
“I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: ‘I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God.’ That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” -CS Lewis, Mere Christianity
