Observing humans running around in an airport is very interesting. You have policemen directing traffic, security people checking bags and shoes, airline personnel hurrying travelers through the line, and business people focused on making that flight to “make the deal.” It borders on entertainment!
Certainly no one entering an airport has hell as their destination, but no doubt many of them are headed the wrong direction in life. Many are so consumed with making the almighty dollar that they simply do not have time for the great destination of heaven. What a trap! Imagine being so caught up in this dying, deteriorating, temporary world that you do not prepare for the eternal life God has promised to those who love and serve Him. It saddens me to think that Satan has some of us so tangled in his web that we will never get out.
You don’t have to go to an airport to observe this scene. It’s everywhere around us. Being in this great nation can be a blessing or a curse, depending on how we live out our lives. Sometimes even we as Christians get so busy that God is barely considered throughout the day. Christians must watch out for the money pit.
The righteous man of Psalm I says,“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.” We also read of the people in Berea who “received the word with great eagerness, examining the scripture daily, to see whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11)
If we really want to be successful we need to run the race of faith, “fixing our eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2). Then we will be truly blessed, not only now, but also throughout eternity.
