There is one way to witness to a stranger on a plane that is better than all other moves. It is such a brilliant move that we’ve been doing it since the Wright Brothers took their first flight. A lot of people don’t know that, but there were actually three people on that first historic flight in Kitty Hawk: the two Wright brothers and a Christian that was hoping they’d have a chance to share the Lord with them. But I am digressing from the move, so here it is:
You read your Bible on the plane.
This one is brilliant because no one can really say, “hey could you please not do that here.” You’re just reading the Bible. And if the person next to you makes even the hint of eye contact you can act all surprised, “Whoa, I didn’t even know I packed that. What is this doing here? Oh hey, you want to get in on this?” There’s no awkward pre conversation where you have to pretend you care where they’re from or where they went to college or how many kids they have. And again, if they never ask about the 14 pound book you’re casually reading next to them, then it’s all good. You got to read the Bible.
