There are many commer- gets a specific "mayhem" that causes damage or acci- dents, such as an out of date GPS, or screaming toddlers. The commercial then pres- ents the idea that your cheap deductible insurance might not cover the damage from these accidents, resulting cials that use our fears in order to entice us to buy in- to their brand, but the first brand that came to my mind was the insurance company Allstate, and their popular series of mayhem commer- cials.

Insur- ance companies represent our attempts to restrain the effects of the mayhem of life. By questioning the extent of our insurance coverage, we are ultimately questioning the extent of our authority. To be human is to attempt on our fear of protection by planting the idea that we are not as fully covered as we would like to think. This then prompts us to consid- er Allstate, so that we will be in "good hands." This re- veals that our culture is con- cerned with managing our lives. We like to have a sense of control, and the commer- cial takes advantage of this by forcing us to question the extent of our insurance cov- erage. We attempt to do every- to have a sense of authority over our lives and our fu- tures. As humans, we have a deep desire for control, as evidenced by the way in which we dictate nearly ev- ery possible aspect of our lives. We can manage ev- erything from the color of our hair to the music we lis- ten to. We resent changes to our routines, which disrupt our sense of authority over our lives. Even an aspect of our lives that is not under our manipulation, such as the weather, is "predicted." This eliminates the surprise of a storm, which gives us a false sense of management. As Christians, we do not have to worry about control- ling our lives. In fact, the Bi- ble stresses the importance of yielding our lives to God. The following verse from Matthew 10:39 (New Living Translation) reminds us that we find true meaning in our lives once God has suprem- acy, "If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it." We do not have to worry and stress about every pos- sible "mayhem" that can oc- cur. Instead, Christians can rest in the promise that "God will meet all your needs ac- cording to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus (Philip- pians 4:19, NIV)." Things do not always go according to our plans, and mayhem does happen, but we have assur- ance that everything is un- der God's control. We might like to have the feeling of authority, but once we realize that God's plans for our lives are far better than any plans we could achieve on our own, it becomes easier to yield jurisdiction of our lives to the Lord. Isaiah 54:10 as- sures us that, even when things appear to be fall- ing apart around us, God's "plan" provides coverage, "'Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shak- en nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the Lord, who has compassion on you (NIV)." There is no need to ever worry about the "cover- age" the Lord provides. The words of Jesus in John 10:28 provides assur- ance that we "are in good hands": "I give them eter- nal life, and they shall nev- er perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand (NIV)."
