July 6, 2013: Asiana flight 214 made a crash-landing at the San Francisco airport. Two died and many were injured. Experts are investigating the cause, but it seems clear a connection with the pilots' failing to fully switch on the navigational landing controls may be at the heart of things.
It may look like I'm straying off-topic, but this morning my thoughts fell on an often pondered dilemma—why does wrong often look or feel so good and good seem sometimes so unexciting. It isn't always so and for some it isn't quite as strong a pull as for others. But why does the enemy seem so in favour of our having fun and being happy, and God seem so often against it?
My reading for this morning included this verse, which triggered all this:
The thief [Satan] comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. ~Jesus
(Authenticity test: the enemy has taken countless lives, but never once offered his own for you.)
