What else do you see? Maybe you noticed that the #4 plane is slightly out of formation; actually noticeably farther away from his flying comrades than the rest. Do you think he's a slacker? Maybe just not as good as the rest? It's interesting to ponder how we react to slight differences -- do we overlook the incredible reality of how close they are to focus on the variances? I confess to having some of those thoughts.
Then, it turns out that the #4 guy dropped out of the show the next day because of illness. So maybe, just maybe, he was feeling a little off his game when this shot was taken and left just a little extra margin of error to protect his formation partners. That changes the perspective, doesn't it?
Lord, help me to be quick to listen, slow to judge, and to be full of grace.
