A young Ensign, after nearly completing his first overseas cruise, was given an opportunity to display his capabilities at getting the ship underway. With a stream of commands he had the decks buzzing with men, and soon his ship was steaming out of the channel en route to the states. His efficiency, in fact, established a new record for getting a destroyer underway so he was not surprised when a seaman approached with a message from the captain. He was a bit surprised, however, to find it was a radio message and even more surprised to read, “My personal congratulations upon completing your underway preparation exercise according to the book and with amazing speed. In your haste, however, you have overlooked one of the unwritten rules – make sure the captain is aboard before getting underway.” I wonder how often we hurry up and take off on some portion of our journey through life without making sure Jesus is on board!
