I was talking with my dad about where it would be better to live in – a house or a condo? You see, I’ve been pondering this question in my mind for a while.
While a house also has its own good sets of things to think about – your own garden, parking space, privacy and perhaps serenity from noisy neighbors (in a Condo’s case, neighbors can literally mean next-door tenants), bigger space to live in, and so on.
But the main things that I’ve been thinking about is my assurance of safety from natural disaster namely: Earthquakes.
Well let’s not make things too complicated – everyone doesn’t want to die. Which means that, to an extent, almost everyone doesn’t really feel good when an earthquake happens. I don’t want to die in an earthquake.
So I told my dad: “Wouldn’t it be better to live in a house? So that when an earthquake hits, chances are you wouldn’t die?”
What he said changed my view on where to live and, ultimately, reminded me of where I should put my security.
“Whether you live in a condo or house doesn’t matter. Who can save you when a tsunami hits and you’re in a house? A condo is taller and chances are you’ll be safer there. In the end, wherever you live in, your life is in God’s hands”
Of course that doesn’t mean I’m living in a condo.
The point is: where is your security?
Put your security in God. He is mighty to save.
