Jetstar pilots forgot to lower the landing gear - Airline Ratings https://www.airlineratings.com/news/jetstar-pilots-forgot-lower-landing-gear/
> ATSB transport safety director Dr Start Godley said the incident highlighted the importance of adhering to standard operating procedures and correctly monitoring the aircraft’s approach.
Methinks there's a spiritual lesson here, too. God has directives for his people. Follow them, and be safe.
Lack of humility is an ugly thing – Forthright Magazine http://forthright.net/2019/12/09/lack-humility-ugly/
> Cain killed his brother. He did so because he would not own up to his unacceptable offering. Where did he learn such hubris? Did he observe the blame game being played by his parents? Humility would have led him to admit his failing to the Lord and to ask him for forgiveness. But no response of his is recorded to the Lord’s admonishment in Genesis 4.6.

Our faith tends to dissipate under pressure and we may emphatically express our fears and worries frantically. God, however, quiets us. He quiets us with His loving presence. Although our problems may remain for a while, His loving presence comforts us and quiets us down.
Good friends, good music, good food!
And now for a good rest!
The more the better?
I beg to differ:
Add lots more pepper!
Concern … and answered prayer – Forthright Magazine http://forthright.net/2019/12/06/concern-answered-prayer/
> When Paul was concerned, he prayed. But he also did what he could do – he sent someone he could trust to go and see what was going on. What a great example for us. Replace our worry with prayer and always do what we can do to encourage those we are concerned about.
