On October 31, 1983, Korean Airlines flight 007 departed from Anchorage, Alaska for a direct flight to Seoul. Due to an unknown 1 ½ degree error in the navigational system computer, the giant 747 jet strayed off course, eventually flying into Soviet air space. Soviet radar picked up the jet, fighters were scrambled to intercept it, and over mainland Russia they shot flight 007 out of the sky, killing all on board.
Sometimes a seemingly small mistake can cause us to veer far off course spiritually. One wrong decision can put us on the path to disaster.
It’s no wonder that the Bible continually urges us to check our course, make sure that we are headed in the right direction and make any necessary changes to keep ourselves on the right path!
“I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”—Luke 13:5.
