One foggy night, the captain of a large ship saw what appeared to be another ship's lights approaching in the distance. This other ship was on a course that would mean a head-on collision. Quickly, the captain signaled to the approaching ship: "Please change your course 10 degrees west." The reply came blinking back through the thick fog: "You change your course 10 degree east."
Indignantly, the captain pulled rank and shot a message back to the other ship: I am a sea captain with 35 years experience. Change your course 10 degrees west!"
Without hesitation, the signal flashed back: "I am a seaman, fourth class. You change your course 10 degrees east!"
Enraged, the captain realized they were approaching each other quickly and would crash within minutes. So he blazed his final warning: "I am a 50,000 ton freighter. Change your course 10 degrees west!"
A simple message winked back: "I am a lighthouse. You change your course!"
Sometimes in life we need to change course when we are faced with the TRUTH.
Hope to see ya Sunday.
