What Would You Do With a Second Chance at Life?
On January 15 of 2009, a US Airways flight ditched in the Hudson River six minutes after taking off from LaGuardia Airport. The "second chance" at life has changed the day to day experience of several passengers on that flight. Take a look at the following video.
I noticed several different responses to a "second chance."
- one man wrote an e-mail giving advice to others
- a woman decided to ask her fellow workers each day, before departing, if she could give them a hug
- a man said that it has changed his relationship with his child--"every moment is electric."
God wants us to live our lives with an eternal perspective. In 2 Corinthians 4:18, the Apostle Paul says, “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” What are some way that we, as Christians, can live our lives with an eternal perspective, without experiencing a plane crash?
In a recent sermon, I encouraged members of St. Paul's to carry booklets, containing the Gospel of John, in their pockets, and to give them to friends as the Spirit directed. What are your ideas?
