“No evil shall befall you…” (Psalms‬ ‭91‬:‭10‬ NKJV)

One of the most infamous crimes in American history took place on the evening of August 9, 1969, when cult leader Charles Manson ordered four members of the Manson Family to break into the Los Angeles home of actress Sharon Tate. Tate and four other victims were brutally murdered. There was one individual, however, that was supposed to be there, but a minor inconvenience saved his life. 

Noted Polish novelist Jerzy Kosinski was invited to attend Tate’s get-together on August 9 and hopped on a flight from Paris to Los Angeles. Kosinski’s luggage ended up being sent to New York by mistake, so when the flight stopped there for a layover, he was forced to leave the plane to retrieve his bags. As a result, he missed the remainder of his flight and was not present at Tate’s home when the Manson murders took place.

While we do not know Kosinski’s spiritual state of the time, we do know what scripture says for the believer. God desires to protect us, even by causing inconvenience if it accomplishes the task. Live a protectable life by staying in God’s hands! You are loved today!
