As a pilot, every six months you go to the simulator for a period of training and testing. Evaluating how we normally complete tasks and refreshing the plan of action for different situations and emergencies that could arise.
As Christians occasionally we need to get out of our daily routine, evaluate how we have been handling daily routine and refresh ourselves on how we should react in an unusual or extreme situation. How have you been reacting when you get cut off in traffic? How are you going to react when the car gets wrecked? What do you say and do when you get dealt a really hard blow? How are you planning to handle that job promotion?
You come up with the questions and then fill in the answers.
Prep time will pay off big dividends! You can make sure you are handling everyday life in an appropriate manner. You won't have to be making big decisions on the fly in the heat of the battle. You will already have a plan in mind and only have to make small corrections to come up with a successful outcome to any situation.
