“I got scared once though, Dad, for I looked around and determined that I was off course. I could see the river and I probably could have found my way, but I decided not to do that.”
He turned around, flew back to the Lake Havasu airport and landed. There, he replotted, and found that indeed he had been off 15 degrees.
There is just no room for error when flying through the skies. Jerry and I recently returned from a vacation trip to Colorado where we did a bit of four-wheeling, and there also is no room for error. I took this picture from the window of our Jeep and as you can see by looking at the tiny trees far down the ravine, we were perched on the edge…and there was no room for error. Look carefully and you will see our tiny trail down there. Had Jerry miscalculated just a few inches, we would have crashed into the deep valley.
As important as is safety in 4-wheeling and in plane flying, so much more are God’s Word and His directions important. We can’t afford to take them lightly, but just as the pilot carefully plots, and the Jeep driver cautiously maneuvers the treacherous trails, so we must delve into God’s Word and with all prayerfulness and studiousness examine its instructions and chart our way.
There is no room for error.
