Woman In Suitcase

In January of 1985, a large suitcase, unmarked and unclaimed, was discovered at the customs office at Los Angles International Airport. When U.S. customs agents opened the suitcase, they found the curled-up body of an unidentified young woman. She had been dead for a few days, according to the county coroner. As the investigation continued, it was learned that the woman was the wife of a young Iranian living in the U.S. Unable to get a visa to get into the U.S. and join her husband, she took matters into her own hands abd attempted to smuggle herself into America via an airplane's cargo bay. While her plan seemed to be simple though risky, officials were hard pressed to understand how such an attempt could ever succeed. Even if she survived the journey in the cargo bay, she would remain an illegal alien. In the same manner, some people believe they'll enter the kingdom of God on their own since they've been reasonably good citizens or church attenders. But entry plans of our own design prove not only foolish but fatal.
