Spider’s Web is Stronger than Steel

A single strand of spider silk is thinner than a human hair, but five times stronger than steel of the same width. A spider silk rope just two inches thick could reportedly stop a Boeing 747. On its own it could do little, but bound together with other strands in a rope, it has awesome strength.

Possible Preaching Angle:

This is like the church. On our own we are vulnerable and weak. But standing together with our brothers and sisters we can impact the world for Christ (1 Cor. 12:12; Rom. 12:4-6).
