Fracture Mechanics

While surfing around the Interwebs this morning I came across this reflection, that I wanted to share with you all. Click here for the complete post.

Fracture mechanics is the science of studying sudden-failure phenomenon. Materials have a yield strength (the stress under which they will yield) but in many cases materials fail at applied stresses below their yield strength. We Christians have also a spiritual yield strength—a spiritual potential--but in many cases fail to reach that potential because we fail at spiritual levels way below what we are capable of. The Bible is full of such examples, such as: the sin of King David with Bathsheba; King Saul; and of course Samson. 

Why do structures fail at applied stresses lower than the known yield strength of their material? That’s because...
