Recently I was on a flight home when I discovered a keen young man of thirty years or so seated next to me. When the flight attendants asked everyone to put their digital devices away or in “airplane mode” for take-off, he kept talking on his phone and later texting. In fact, he was texting back and forth during the entire flight. When it came time to stow away the seat tables for landing, he was still reading a magazine, texting and leaning on his open seat table, which remained down throughout the landing.
My befuddlement was at the flight attendants who looked at him and never said anything, yet told others to put away things and stow their seat tables. He appeared to be a very intelligent businessman, so his disregard for any flight rules was certainly a puzzle.
Are you guilty of the same? Maybe you have not disregarded flight rules but what about Jesus’ commands? James says, “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin” James 4:17. ESV
Let’s not get caught in the trap of thinking that what we are doing is more important than following the Lords’ commands. After all, even Jesus, as an adult, regarded his mother while turning water into wine.
