    Lostness of Humanity

    Evangelism focuses on reaching out to people who are lost.  Depravity of human beings is described as ‘lostness’ in the Scripture.  Luke 15 is an interesting chapter on lostness of humanity with three parables told  by Jesus. Pharisees and scribes considered all people as sinners, who were ignorant of the Law. (John 7:49)  The Pharisees opposed and grumbled as they did not appreciate Christ’s love and motive to reach out to sinners. The three parables describe four kinds of people who ought to be evangelized.  The parable of the Lost Coin appeals to women who live indoors, while the parable of the Lost Sheep appeals to men who work outdoors.  The parable of the Lost Sons brings to focus the context of the family. 

    Leadership Excellence

    Balancing is a great leadership act of excellence.  In fact, an excellent leader balances and blends the two extremes to bring out brilliant performance.  Lord Jesus Christ model of leadership shows the marvelous balancing of extremes.  Leaders of excellence have the knack to tackle the extremes and bring out creative solutions.  Such leaders enjoy the creative tension caused in the process of balancing and even excel in doing so.

    Upgrading Our Faith

    Upgrading skills, knowledge, gadgets, vehicles…etc has emerged as essential task in modern life.  A person could lose his/her job if the skills are not upgraded.  Those who fail to upgrade the knowledge would run the risk of being branded ‘irrelevant’ or ‘incompetent’.  Advertisements scream offering upgradation of all gadgets from computers to mobile phones.  Improved version of vehicles hit the market every day.  In a fast moving world, upgrading is an ongoing progressive progress. 

    Parable of Mobile Phone

    Mobile Phones or cell phones are the new technological innovation that has redefined lives of people.  For some, it is like an umbilical chord not to be detached.  Certainly, it provides mobility with connectivity, a lifestyle aspiration for many Postmodern.  It is possible to be in touch with the beloved ones or office bosses or colleagues while away physically from the familiar environment.  Some times, mobile phones could be a nightmare with unsolicited calls, advertisement calls, and non-essential calls troubling many.  In spite of great technological strides, the mobile phones could be frustrating experience for many at different times.
