On an Air India flight the captain and his co-pilot had a difference of opinion. It grew into an argument that escalated to trading blows in the cockpit. The pilots agreed to stop fighting and complete the flight from Jaipur to Delhi to avoid inconveniencing passengers.
It is wise for us to realize that all conflicts bring inconvenience and many times worse to non combatants. It is especially something we should think about in our families and our churches. When mom and dad are fighting, the children are inconvenienced. When church leaders are fighting the whole church suffers. -- Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
