Just Like a Rope

We shouldn’t underestimate someone just because of how they look externally. Just like a rope that looks soft, can be bent, and if it’s short, can be super lightweight. But try to use it where it is really intended for and you will be surprised at how much strength it has inside.

We should be mindful of the words we’re using, they can heal or permanently wound hearts. Just like a rope that can save a life but can cause death too if used wrongly.

We shouldn’t hold on to people too tightly because it wouldn’t just hurt them but in the process we would hurt ourselves as well. Just like a rope that can be used to hold something captive or be used to bond many things together in order to keep them from falling apart.
