September 30 - Wrong Assumptions

It happened again...another forest fire was raging in the hills above Los Angeles and a "FOX NEWS" photographer had requested a private plane from his supervisor. It was granted and he called the local airport to charter a flight. He was told a twin engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.

Sure enough...he arrived at the airfield and spotted a plane warming up outside of a hanger. He jumped in with his gadget bag, slammed the door and shouted, "Let's go!"

The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off. In the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, "Fly over the valley and make several low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides."

"Why?" asked the pilot.

"Because I'm a photographer for FOX CABLE NEWS NETWORK, and I need to get some close up shots!"

The pilot was strangely quiet for a few seconds and finally stammered, "So, what you're telling me, is that you're NOT my flight instructor?"

And then we have the inventors of the airplane, Wilbur and Orville Wright who were extremely un-talkative! They hated speeches. At a luncheon for inventors, the toastmaster thought Wilbur was to make a speech and called on him, "There must be some mistake," he stammered. "Orville is the one who does the talking."

The toastmaster turned to Orville, who stood up and said, "Wilbur just made the speech."

In this world...don't make any assumptions without all the straight facts!

Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (John 8:32).
