Si Mang Ambo ay naging trainer ng parachuting. Si Islaw na trainee ay nagtanong, “Sir paano po kung hindi bumuka ang parachute?” Sagot ni Ambo, “H’wag kang mag-alala, Islaw. Kapag hindi bumuka, papalitan ng supplier yan.”
Often, people fail to respond on time that causes irreparable damages, which they regret for life. Being lax and negligent, they miss the wonderful opportunity available for them.
This is the reason why the Scripture is urging us to pay attention on the important chance that God is providing us, especially for our salvation. Time will come that the Lord will shut the heaven and no access will be left to those who ignored Him. As prophet Isaiah tells us, “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near”. (Isaiah 55:6)
Therefore, while God is still near and accessible, let us grab the opportunity to call on him for there would be no second chance for the complacent.
