Almost everyone has heard of the “egg drop experiment. This simple test allows the student to construct a container that protects a raw egg from cracking as it’s dropped from a certain height. What is the actual purpose of this? I guess it’s to get students thinking about creativity through engineering.
The obvious effect from dropping an egg from any height would be for it to break. Figuring out how to protect it is the engineering process that takes place. If you were that egg how would you feel about the experiment? Would you have total trust in the one who was conducting it? Most likely you wouldn’t.
We are often like those eggs, forgetting that we have someone we can count on for protection on a daily basis. There are times when we think we can control our own destiny and don’t need anyone’s help, but being part of God’s family gives more protection than a few soft cotton balls or plastic bubble wrap. His love, power and wisdom wrap us in a much stronger armor. We also have the support of others like us, who have gone through similar breaks along the way.
Lord, never let me forget the suit of armor you’ve made for me. It protects me from the arrows of Satan and his minions. It covers me with your love and safety. I am confident knowing that you will always hold me in your loving arms. Amen!
A MIGHTY FORTRESS IS OUR GOD!
