Home Security

Week 5 - Chapter 5

"The World's Best Security System"

Do a quick search on the Internet for "Best Security System" and no doubt you will be inundated with so many options to choose from that your head will be spinning.  I considered listing a few, but decided against it as I decided not to provide any free advertising or inadvertent web-crawler linking. I did a simple search for determining how much is spent annually on home security systems, and in the U.S. alone, Americans spend 20.64 Billion Dollars annually.

Security is a big deal for many Americans and I understand it.   The world in which we live in is not safe.  As I have previously stated... We live in a broken world with broken people... I too am broken.

Home security solutions have limitations.  They are not full-proof.  They have holes.  They can be tricked, bypassed, or even potentially used against you if you are not careful.  They can provide a false sense of security in that they fail to safeguard you from everything.  Leave the house for, for example, and the money spent protecting your home now ceases to protect you.  Sure your belongings may be safe, but your physical protection is no longer assured.

A couple questions I will ponder this week as I read, re-read, and re-re-read the chapter this week...

  1. Where do I tend to look for security?  What gives me an inner sense of well-being?
  2. What are the things I need to say to myself when life is unpredictable and/or dangerous?

Home security is just one example of "security" as there are several others that will be touched on this week.  I welcome you to join me this week as I explore "The World's Best Security System".

Psalm 27:1
"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?"


  1. I look forward to reading your comments this week Ryan. I don't have a security system at home but we do have one at the church building. As you know it has its flaws. But I like your thought: leave the home and the security system no longer protects you. Therefore, I'll stand with Psalm 27:1.

    1. Not bad to have a security system... just need to realize it's limitations. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Speaking of security, my husband just installed some bigger, brighter outdoor lights on our house. Light will definitely dispel the darkness that folks with evil intentions embrace. May our true security, though, be found in God's loving arms. The Lord is our light and salvation, indeed!
    Blessings, Ryan!

    1. I couldn't agree more... The best security for my eternal life... God's loving arms. Thanks for commenting!
