I’m writing today’s Minute from 35,000 feet. In case you’re wondering, I’m in an airplane. A few minutes ago, the flight attendant got onto the guy in front of me for not wearing his seatbelt. And that reminded me of one of my favorite airplane stories.
Mohammad Ali was flying on a plane one day, not wearing his seatbelt. When the flight attendant told him to fasten his seatbelt, Ali quipped, “Superman don’t need no seatbelt.”
The flight attendant responded, “Superman don’t need no airplane!”
None of us is Superman. We all need to take safety measures, whether at 35,000 feet or on the ground. None of us has achieved so little that he cannot win the next battle. And none of us has achieved so much that he cannot lose the next battle.
So go ahead. Buckle up.
Recovery Step: Never take your recovery for granted. You were born for this day (Esther 4:14). And God probably has another day out there for you tomorrow. So take every precaution to preserve your sobriety. Buckle up.
