Thoughts from Generations by Hugh Mackay.

“In other words, our insecurities and uncertainties stimulate our desire for security and certainty. We are almost instinctively attracted to the confident voice, the strong leader, the person who seems to know what ought to be done. Moral vacuums yearn to be filled.

The danger at such times, is that we might settle for an easy certainty, when uncertainty might be more appropriate, we might take refuge in the security of a simple view of the word, when the world might actually be more complex than we would wish.

The challenge is to learn how to live with uncertainty.”

As Christians our security is in God, so we can live with uncertainty.
