The Bible as Your Instrument Panel
Pilots flying in thick clouds describe it like swimming in a bowl of milk; everything outside their cockpit window is sheet white and it is visually impossible to know if you are flying up or down or left or right. Many pilots say the feeling is so disorienting that they thought they were flying straight, only to read their instrument panel and discover they are pointing the plane at the ground, or banking in a slow circle. This is why every pilot must learn to read the plane’s instrument panel before being certified to fly. We have an instrument panel too called the Bible, and no matter how life looks around us or how straight we think we are going, we must always check ourselves against the Bible, otherwise, we may just nosedive.
