The path in my first picture is bordered by cornfields, but where does it take us? To this huge field. Phil loves to fly remote controlled planes, and he does it in this field. You can see what a huge open space it is, and in the third picture you can see the cornfield around it. No matter how far away he starts, the plane always heads for the cornfields, as you can see it doing here. And when it lands (or should I say crashes?) it is also in the cornfield. The corn is like a magnet to the plane. The fields are huge, so how does he find it? He turns the engine on with his remote control and then drives along the edge of the corn rows listening for it. Here you see him heading into the corn, then returning with the plane after a succesful hunt. It seems like he is spending more and more time searching. Surely, many things of the world try to pull us away from God just as these cornfields pull that little plane. But the seeker is always there, for the whole purpose of his life was to seek and save us. Then, with him as our pilot, we know our landing will be a very soft one, indeed.
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." Luke 19:10
