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.” What happens when the pilot does not know where he is headed? A God Alert
There are people today who are very confused because they have looked to the wrong persons to help them find the meaning in life that they seek. Often enough our problem is not that we are at the wrong terminal in life. Our problem is that we don’t have the Lord as our pilot and taking us where we need to go.
