Ever Given

March 22, 2021

Suez Canal: Suez Canal suspends traffic as ship stuck like ‘beached whale.’ The Ever Given ship, almost as long as the Empire State Building is high, is blocking canal transit in both directions. Egyptian tugboats trying to free Taiwan-owned cargo MV Ever Given (Evergreen), which is lodged sideways across one of the world’s busiest shipping channels.

Note: Scale of importance? 1 to 100? Ummm maybe 0.0003. Incorrect: It was the biggest failure of shipping on the books! Why the very low report of importance?

Easy answer: That occurrence can be compared to a mosquito riding on the side of a space ship on its way to Mars. It maybe was still alive—but rather shook up. No biggy; things like that happen daily. Why am I writing down all these silly words? Sometimes silly-worded comparisons can help move a high thought through to people’s ‘blocked minds.’

Ever Given is a tiny occurrence, comparing it to the blockage of the Spiritual trying to reach man’s Spiritual mind, heart, and spirit. Not only one Suez Canal is involved, but thousands of them—some even larger. Note: This comparison may need to be quantupled to get closer to what is reality.

Maybe here is where Corinthians refers to God chooses the despised, foolish, and weak to be his servants. In doing this, he confounds the mighty, proves his power, and reveals who he is.

1 Cor 1:27

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

(Is it possible God would choose an eighty year old weakling like myself to be even typing these words? Time will tell.)

Please Lord: Guide my thoughts.
