The parable of the prodigal son continues to inspire me, in spite of the fact that it is one of the most common passages in the whole Bible. Today I was struck by the word “LOST”. There is a popular TV series by that name, containing elements of science fiction and the supernatural that follows the survivors of the crash of a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney and Los Angeles, on a mysterious tropical island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean. Yet I felt today that I am lost as well, not in a tropical island, but in one time the centre of the world- Rome. I tend to lose the grip of myself sometimes. It is something like loss of self-control. My mind often goes wild, and finally when it returns to ‘senses’ I have lost a lot of time already.
I know, God in His abundant mercy, will embrace me and hold me dearly with outstretched arms if I return. Yet… the point is I have got to take the initiative to come out of the piggery and make that all important RETURN.
