Psalm 118

“The stone that the builders rejected has become the capstone.” (118:22)

The capstone is the topmost stone that joins the two halves of the arch. With it in place, the arch stands firm; without it, the stones in the arch would fall. The person who is ignored in high school, left out, unpopular, should not despair. He or she will have another chance. There is always another chance. The person who does not fit in one setting just hasn’t found the place where her talents will shine. To that person, I say, “Don’t get discouraged if it takes time to find the right fit. There is a place in which you will flourish and without you in that place, the structure will collapse.”
