Prince go back, take home a priceless reward

The DNA, Mumbai once published a Front Page News headline which said “Track Prince, take home Rs.1 lakh” with sub-title City Cat Lover offers reward for missing feline companion by Udayan Mukherjee, Mumbai. The Article said that a resident of south Mumbai had offered a reward of Rs.1 lakh for tracing Prince, missing from his locality since the last 3 days. The newspaper also stated that the owner of this male black cat, Patelbhai (name changed) has placed two advertisements in city newspapers offering the reward for those tracing and delivering Prince back to him. It exhorted Mumbaikars to take a stroll in the neighbourhood, straining their ears for that meow - however faint it may be!....

This reminds me of a story in the Bible of a man who had 100 sheeps and one of his sheep was lost. He began searching for it like Patelbhai. Patelbhai says “My family is heartbroken. I hope somebody brings him back”. The shepherd was similarly distraught at the loss of his prince. He left his remaining 99 sheep and went after his prince. He loved his sheep so much that he could not remain without one of them. He went far wide and did not leave any place from his search (he did not have the benefit of the print media in those days!). But his search was not futile. He found his prince. The moment was a time of rejoicing for him. His joy knew no bounds. He threw a party and invited his friends to celebrate the joyous occasion. I do not know whether Patelbhai found Prince as there was no further news coverage.

The story in the Bible is symbolic of God’s love for humans. He loves his creation so much and longs for their fellowship. But mankind has began searching for fulfilment apart from God. They have moved so far away from God that they are lost. But God came searching for man. He became man and offered his own life for finding man. He made a way for man to go back to God and regain all that he has lost because of wandering away from him. Find for yourself the way back to God by reading any of the gospels* and you could end up getting a priceless reward.


*The gospels are the first four books named Mathew, Mark, Luke & John in the New Testament portion of the Bible.
