This morning, I am sharing with you what I just learnt about Pilots:
Pilots practice situational awareness. They know the position of all aircraft in their vicinity, what potential dangers they represent, and actions to be taken should the danger become reality.
How do they accomplish this? Pilots do not allow distractions. When they are flying, pilots are in the flying business period.
This makes me remember some verses I stumbled upon in my second year of university, when I first bought my Message Bible.
Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions.
Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you.
Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust. Proverbs 4:25-27 [MSG]
Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others.
Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Gal 6:4-5 [MSG]
My thought on this: Handle your life as a Pilot handles his jet.
Happy Weekend, friends.
