We have all seen this and of course given it our full attention, have we not? It really amuses me that as part of the preparation for an emergency on this scale the Air Stewards on Airlines appear quite confident in their belief that there is an opportunity or indeed a requirement for any of us to don a flimsy lifejacket located somewhere randomly around our seating area on an aeroplane crashing into the sea at 500 miles per hour. 

Sorry did I say “crashing” as this is not a “landing”, this is a crashing into water, which at that speed has all the properties of concrete and in fact few of us are going to survive. Regardless, our hosts persevere with the delusion and include further instructions about a tiny light attached to the life-jacket which at best is the size of your thumb to “attract attention”. I mean really a light this size in any sea known to man is not going to “attract attention” amid the vastness of the sea combined with the volatile surface of the sea itself. Don’t even get me started about the whistle? It would be better to be honest and say, that actually “In the event of landing on water few of us are going to survive”. 

As with the above scenario, unfortunately flimsy lifejackets, tiny lights and whistles are not going to save us from certain death. Whether we experience the “event of landing on water”, die of some illness or simply old age, the Bible tells us that “Yet you do not even know what tomorrow will bring. 

What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.” James 4 v 14…Are you ready for that event, never mind “landing” on water?
