Now this is different, I couldn't think of any tale to tell, so I decided to just think and imagine something out of the box...And all I could think about was "The Rib"
How many of us wondered why God chose the rib?
Have you asked why?
Oh well, I just did.. If you have or haven't, this is for You...
Who knew the ribs protects the heart and lungs and even supports us around?
Who knew the duty of the rib is to ensure that we are created perfectly and beautifully?
Who knew that the ribs are very strong yet delicate and fragile?
Oh yes!, the heart is the center of our being , the lungs hold the breath of our life but then, did you know that the rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart?...How sacrificial!!!
From the excerpts of this mini illustration, If your body system is composed of a rib cage, then I can autocratically assure you through the power vested upon me by the holy spirit that "YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE"
And just like the rib, we are all fragile, delicate, yet powerful. Well, we just can't assimilate all of this fully until life pushes us. This push can occur as a result of an internal or external push.
The rib is a component of the life support system, It is intertwined. It needs the other parts to aid it function effectively.
''Eve emerged through Adam's rib ...
Now, imagine the wonders of the most high." And also imagine again why he chose the rib.
The rib protects us, the rib surrounds the chest, it enables the lungs to expand thereby facilitating breathing and expanding the chest cavity.
It may interest you to know that all mammals created by God from humans to animals were formed with ribs.
Just like the ribs existing within us, let us in union, emulate what it represents and of course apply them in our practical lives.
Now let's check out once again the functions of the ribs;
Ø It protects.
Ø It supports.
Ø It sacrifices.
Ø It needs other parts to work effectively
No man is an island fam, we need each other. If our ribs can do all of this, then we have no excuse as owners of these ribs to not do same.. To not assist one another, protect one another and love one another... Regardless of what or who we are lovelies, White or Black, Male or Female, Tall or short, rich or soon to be rich... please Lets choose to be the RIB today.
We can be much more!
