“IF A PILOT fails to make the necessary corrections in the early stages of his journey, he will find that the small error will multiply in proportion to the distance he flies…
The first few miles he may find that he is not far off course.
But let them fly hundreds, or thousands of miles, and he will be so far off course that drastic measures would be needed to reach the destruction, if he can reach it at all.
Likewise, if we fail to make corrections immediately and concisely along the road of life, we will look up one day and wonder how in the world we got where we are.
If we wait until we are so far off course to make the necessary correction we may find the getting back on course is difficult at best, and impossible at worst.
Apostasy is seldom something that occurs over night.
It is the consequence of one’s failure to make those small corrections along the way.
Like the wise pilot, the child of God will make those course corrections along the pathway of life frequently and faithfully. Tom Waycaster, Studies in HEBREWS, “The Dangers of Apostasy,” 224
“Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away” (Heb. 2:1).
