No Overbooking in Heaven

April 12, 2017

On my way home from Indiana a couple of weeks ago I heard United Airlines asking for volunteers to give up their seats on an overbooked flight.  They started by offering a $200.00 flight credit and by the time they were done they were up to a $800.00 credit, a hotel room, if needed, and meal vouchers.  I don’t know if anyone snapped up the offer or not, I would have.  
I wondered at the time, “What if they don’t get a volunteer?”  Well, apparently according to a video that surfaced earlier this week they will bodily drag you off the airplane. 

If that wasn’t enough to set off the flying public, it was later released that United was simply making room for four employees from a sister airline.  Oops.

So apparently, airlines are allowed to sell more tickets than they have seats for on any given airplane and if everybody shows up they have the right to tell you there is no seat available, even though you’ve already paid for your seat.  That hardly seems fair. 

But here is the good news, heaven won’t be overbooked, Jesus has already secured your spot, you just have to claim it, and you will never get bumped.  And they won’t break your guitar either.

 Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
