During one of the busiest times at Houston’s Hobby Airport, a flight was delayed due to a mechanical problem.
Since they needed the gate for another flight, the aircraft was backed away from the gate while the maintenance crew worked on it. The passengers were then told the new gate number, which was some distance away. Everyone moved to the new gate, only to find that a third gate had been designated. After some further shuffling, everyone got on board.
As they were settling in, the flight attendant made the standard announcement, “We apologize for the inconvenience of this last-minute gate change. This flight is going to Washington, D.C. If your destination is not Washington, D.C., then you should ‘deplane’ at this time.”
A very confused-looking and red-faced pilot emerged from the cockpit, carrying his bags. “Sorry,” he said, “wrong plane.” This is what happens when the pilot does not know where he is headed?
There are people today who are very distraught because they have looked to a confused pilot to take them to where they need to go.
Often enough our problem is not that we are at the wrong terminal gate in life. Our problem is that we don’t have someone with values and morals in the cockpit with the Lord sitting next to them who can take us where we all need to go.
What pilots might YOU be following who don’t know where they are headed?
THE PERSON WHO SAYS, “I’M ALONE…..HAS NEVER LISTENED TO GOD WHO IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE WITH THEM!
