Don't neglect the basics
We all know the first rule for international travel - always double-check to make sure you have your passport. We have all heard stories of crying spouses and aborted vacations--because someone forget the basics.
I had an embarrassing moment on a recent return trip from the Dominican Republic. I checked out of my hotel and rode 35 minutes to the airport only to discover that I had a major problem--no passport. It wasn't lost. Actually, it was very safe - still in the security box at my hotel room.
It isn't really important whether I made my flight or not. I did learn an important lesson that day - don't neglect the basics.
What are the implications for my life and ministry? And yours? I don't know about you, but I sense we would do well to review Acts 6:4.
