Safety Briefing

November 13, 2013


I was on my way to South Carolina the other day and I started my flight doing something I haven’t done in a long time.  I actually listened to the airline’s safety spiel. It was kind of interesting.  The first thing that captured my attention was the seat belt demonstration.  Now I don’t want to appear unkind in any way, shape or form, but let’s face it, if you don’t know how to operate a seat belt you probably shouldn’t be permitted to fly by yourself. Just sayin’
But then it got even more interesting! The flight attendant started to explain the oxygen masks and told us if they dropped and we were travelling with children that we should put ours on before attempting to help our children,  and I thought to myself,  “That will preach!” 
What she was telling us was: while there was no guarantee that your salvation would assure that your children would be saved, apparently it would make it more likely.  That transfers to church as well.  While spiritually there is no guarantee that your salvation will assure that your children will be saved, it will make their salvation more likely.  Why?  Because more is caught then taught.  And you do care about your kid’s salvation, don’t you?  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
