Tiniest Rivets

Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 23 – 29 September 2018


“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

– Matthew 7:27

A documentary in the National Geographic Channel studied the Titanic disaster in detail. The structure was studied down to its tiniest rivets. After an extensive review, the show concluded that the rivets played part in the integrity of the ship’s hull. It was too brittle to survive the impact with the iceberg.

In every structure, even the smallest bits of screw, nail or bolt can make the difference; sometimes between life and death.

Our personality is also tested down to its tiniest characteristic. As we continually grow, we also develop our strength, faith and prowess. What makes the difference is on how we grow. There are people who become whose personality have become their strength because of the amount of the tests they have endured; others do not fare so well.

God has made us unique from one another; as such, we have different levels of tolerance. Our lives will be anchored on our personality. As we continually move in the journey of life, let us ask our Divine Creator to give us the strength, courage, determination and everything we need to be strong especially when we are facing the storms of our lives.

A house is no stronger than its weakest foundations.
