Are you a frequent flier? I have flown many cross country trips to visit my family, and traveled by plane twice to England. Safety instructions are shared in three ways: demonstration by trained attendants, leaflets in the pocket of your seat, and by video messages on the screens.
I find it very interesting that in case of emergencies parents or care givers are directed to put an oxygen mask on themselves first! Step two is to place a mask on any small children traveling with them. It goes against logic and parental protection instincts to protect ourselves first. However, it is true that we will not be much help to our children if we black out from lack of oxygen!
In Nehemiah we read of a similar situation. "Then the priests and Levites, purified themselves, and purified the people, the gates, and the wall (Nehemiah 12:30 NKJ)." Religious leaders need to search their hearts and seek continuous cleansing before ministering to others.
