A Scientist calculated the force required (kg.) to raise him out of the pit.
A Geologist told him to appreciate the rock strata in the pit.

Psalm 40:1-2 (KJV);
“I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.”
May God bless you, guys!
