On the Rock

When someone has something of which he can be entirely sure, he can afford to be humble. He doesn’t need to react to every contrary opinion. He can relax. It is those who are uncertain at the center who are always defensive and intolerant. They must shore up their position, because it can’t stand on its own. They must attack opposing views, because otherwise the weakness of their own position is likely to be noticed. Their ideas need to be propped up by a noisy campaign, because otherwise they are likely to topple.

The one who has his feet firmly planted
on the Rock of Ages does not worry about
every little approaching wave.

He stands at a place of unmovable certainty. He will not be moved.

-Jurgen Schulz
