Priscilla Hammond ~ What’s Stronger: Wood or Steel?
What’s stronger: wood or steel? You don’t even have to think about it, do you? Steel is a stronger construction material than wood. Steel is harder than wood, so of course, it’s the stronger of the two.
My husband and I were hiking at Tallulah Gorge, and I stopped to take this photo. A steel cable that once held up a bridge was wrapped around a tree. The cable was rusted and cut off, and the trunk was all that was left of the tree.
The cable was dead, but the tree was alive. So, the stronger thing was the thing that kept growing. The live tree had overtaken the immovable steel.
In the same way, God calls us to keep moving. With God, we are stronger than anything in the world that tries to bind us. The person who is moving forward with God is stronger than the thing that is trying to hold her back.
