This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
We heard of the crash of a plane at the Lexington Kentucky airport last week. As of this time we have been told that the crash occurred because of pilot error—they were taking off from a runway that was too short to accommodate a plane of that size. This accident brings to mind the importance of being totally sure about everything we do. Now even with that being said, humans aren't above missing something and having a mistake occur as a result.
If something doesn't look right, it probably isn't. If a red flag waves in your mind about something, there is probably a good reason for that. It appears that man has a sense of when something is suspicious, so we need to make the most of that God-given talent and check things out. From the black box recorder, we are told the pilots were talking about how the runway had no lights. In other words it was strange to them that a runway wouldn't be lighted; but they went on with the flight anyway. Remember, if you need to take time to look something over, do so. If you need time to think something over, do so. Don't rush yourself nor allow someone else to rush you (Genesis 3:1–6; Proverbs 7:7–23; Gen. 27:1–38; Joshua 9:1–27; 1 King 13:1–31; Luke 14:28–32). Make all things as sure as you can (Matthew 27:65; 1 Thessalonians 5:21; Revelation 2:2).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
