There is much news about air traffic controllers falling asleep or watching movies instead of watching the screens and directing aircraft.
In their defense, air safety isn’t the easiest career to get into.
Controllers are responsible not just for negotiating runway traffic, but policing the skies for about a 50-mile radius around their towers.
It’s a high-stress position that requires eagle-eye attention on the job, which is difficult for anyone to keep up for an eight-hour shift; and many air traffic control units work rotating shifts to keep airports staffed around the clock.
To be hired, candidates must be no more than 31 years old and have begun the three-to-five year training to become certified. The federal government mandates that controllers retire by age 56.
As a Christian, you’re a type of air traffic controller.
When you share the message of Jesus and someone accepts Him as their Savior, they become rapture ready!
However, too many Christians are “asleep in the tower”.
It is written now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Rom 13:11
Awake to righteousness, and do not sin. 1 Cor 15:34
Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light. Eph 5:14
