Always Carry Your Bible

A 50-something year old Muslim man arrived at his seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn’t want the seat.  The seat was next to an elderly woman reading her Bible.

Disgusted, the Muslim man summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat.  The man said “I cannot sit here next to this infidel.”  The flight attendant said, “Let me see if I can find another seat.”

After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated,  “There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class.” 

About 10 minutes went by, and the flight attendant returned and stated,  “The  captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy,  but there is one in first class.   It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class!”

Before the irate Muslim man could say anything, the attendant gestured to the elderly woman and said, “Therefore, madam, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class, as the captain doesn’t want you to sit next to an unpleasant person.”

Passengers in the seats nearby began to applaud, while some gave a standing ovation!

Can I get an”Amen” to that!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, and give fully!
