WHO’S PILOTING YOUR PLANE

An airline executive, tired of constant problems with people, longed for perfect employees. His hopes seemed fulfilled when scientists suggested that as a start he replace aircrews with completely automatic airplanes – computers would replace pilots, engineers, and even flight attendants. The executive was delighted. No more errors, no more emotional difficulties, no more people problems.

A demonstration flight was quickly arranged for the board of directors. Everything went perfectly. The plane took off, reached cruising altitude, and leveled off. The board members loosened their seat belts and relaxed, all smiles.

Just as they were congratulating the executive, a voice came over the speaker system: "This is your computer pilot speaking. Welcome to the completely automated airplane. Lunch will now be served. Merely press the button at your seat and it will arrive automatically. After lunch may I suggest you sit back and enjoy the flight. I am in complete control of the plane. Nothing can go wrong. Nothing can go wrong. Nothing can go wrong. Nothing can go wrong..."

Have you ever thought you were flying your own plane, in charge of your own life? Maybe your making decisions without consulting God first. Maybe you think you know better than God. Remember the words of Proverbs 3:5-6... "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. "

For His Cause,
