“Minute of Meditation: Never Assume”

A photographer was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene hampered him and he asked his home office to hire a plane. Arrangements were made and he was told to go at once to a nearby airport, where the plane would be waiting. When he arrived at the airport, he jumped into the plane with his equipment and yelled, "Let's go!" The pilot swung the plane into the wind and they soon were in the air. "Fly over the north side of the fire," yelled the photographer, "Why?" asked the pilot. "Because I'm a photographer and I am going to take pictures.  After a pause the pilot said, "You mean you're not the instructor?" 

We can get into a lot of trouble when we assume.  For example, many times people will assume they are right with God when maybe they are not. 

The Bible tells us we do not have to assume when it comes to our eternal destination.  1 John 5:13 reads, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life.  If you would like to know more about Christ and eternal life please contact us.

I am Mark T. Tonkery with a minute of meditation from the Camden Ave. church of Christ where you are always welcome.
