Life remains fragile.

Like many people all across the world, I have been moved and concerned about COVID-19. It has led me to reflect upon how fragile many things really are. Under the semblance of control we think we have, sadly, we are sorely inadequate at so many things.

In the case of a fleeting few days, the world as we know it, has changed. Its actually a little scary to recognise how vulnerable and delicate our planet and life as we know it really are. The feeble foundation of the global financial system is one thing.  The deep cracks within many nations, another. The volatility and ferocity of Mother Nature. The frailties of the human body.  Need I go on? All have been exposed to turmoil and disruption.

Let’s be mindful of our fragility and 𝗴𝗿𝗮𝘀𝗽 hold of it, snuggle up to it. Oftentimes it is the fragile nature of something that makes it very precious.

Consider where you are unnecessarily fragile.

In the days ahead as we rebuild our lives and society starts to recover, lets be ever mindful of the 𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘴 that will return once more. We must choose to construct our houses on rock, just like the wise man and not on a sandy foundation, like the foolish man.

All of us will need to dig deep and ensure that we stand on solid foundations so that we are prepared and resilient enough to withstand the storms which will inevitably return.
