Frequent Flyer Benefits

Even with all the problems the airlines have, they've managed to keep something that's pretty valuable to those that fly a lot. It's those frequent flyer deals, and sometimes you can actually get a kind of a free pass to fly somewhere for nothing!

I got one of those coupons a while back, and it entitled me to an upgrade to a first class seat on a future flight. And that's a privilege that's really appreciated when I've got a lot of major work to get done. They even let me board before any other passengers. I got a lot of dirty looks, but it was nice. And that meant I could get right to work on the plane instead of standing in line.

Now you could be saying, "Well, aren't you special?" Well listen, there's nothing special about me that gets me these special privileges, except that when you're a frequent flyer on this airline, they give this kind of reward to anyone who flies a lot and does it consistently with them. See, the airlines want to train us to think one simple thought, customer loyalty pays off!

what. He has some wonderful blessings, some unspeakable joy, and some tremendous rewards for you if you'll stay faithful for a few more miles. In the words of Galatians 6:9, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

The best rewards Jesus has to give are for those who fly faithfully with Him through it all.
