Today I discovered something truly amazing and I’m sure you’ve not heard about it yet but, it’s called a rudder. Now, you’re probably wondering what that is. Well, a rudder is the primary means of control in a marine vessel (ships, boats, submarines), airplanes and hovercrafts too!
For boats and ships it’s usually a blade positioned at the stern (a stern is the rear or aft-most part of the ship that’s positioned at the sternpost) of the vessel controlled by the pilot to steer the ship to its destination! the rudder is basically one of the most important parts of the ship for its responsible for its turns. Wow! Just imagine something happens to the rudder of a vessel during movement. Hmmm, who knows maybe that’s part of the reason the titanic sank!
Now, look at the importance of a rudder on a ship or aircraft. It’s small but strong enough to actually steer a giant monster’s movement. Let’s all try and input a rudder in our lives and let our captain be God who will steer us unto the right paths.
Food for thought
4 Likewise, look at the ships: though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the impulse of the helmsman determines.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and it can boast of great things. See how much wood or how great a forest a tiny spark can set ablaze!
6 And the tongue is a fire. [The tongue is a] world of wickedness set among our members, contaminating and depraving the whole body and setting on fire the wheel of birth (the cycle of man’s nature), being itself ignited by hell (Gehenna).
