Cricket World Cup 2007

Cricket world cup 2007 ended on a bad note with all problems in the final. Once again Australia proved they are world campions. Many people were not happy with many things. India and Pakistan going out early was a shock to millions of people. Many people in Asia where expecting Sri Lanka to win. But untimately Australia proved that they are far above all other teams. This Australian team looks unbeatable. Anyway I am sure on any given day they can lose to any team as it happened with India and Pakistan.

Now all the teams will be hoping for the next world cup in 2011. But again it will depend upon how well the teams start preparing from now. Bangladesh performed this time. Bob Woolmer death was also a sad part of this world cup.

Few lessons from this worldcup:-

  1. Never Underestimate anyone. (Bangladesh & Netherlands)
  2. Never Overestimate anyone. (India & Pakistan)
  3. Champions will remain champions if they play upto their potential. (Australia)
  4. If you have a team which is not based on few big names but all people playing their part then you can go far ahead. (Sri Lanka)
  5. No one knows when they will face death and leave this world. (Bob Woolmer)

That bring me to conclusion-

Bible Says in Hebrews 9:27 -” And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment“.

Let’s think about our life. Are we ready to face the judgement of God if we are to face the reality of Death today?

They do not Compromise

"They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths." Psalms 119:3 (NLT)

We are living in times when compromise has almost become the rule of life. But its not always called as compromise. Sometimes compromise is shielded under words like tolerance, patience, endurance, love for each other, respect for one another etc. Have you ever thought about it. Most of the time we compromise something or other in our life. There are times when you don't have any other way but to compromise.

But today I want to divert your attention towards things your compromise in your spiritual life. Compromise is a slow poison that ultimately destroys respect for truth. What does that mean? You start with small and end up compromising on big things. This is very much true with our beliefs and convictions about truth and doctrine. First thing we must check in our life that how strong we are in our beliefs and convictions. It will have a direct impact on the fact that how easily we co…

Increase in Wickedness - Love will grow cold

We are living in a time when wickedness has become a sort of style or fashion of the day. If we notice the news and keep track of the things happening all around us then we know that with each day wickedness is not only increasing but getting popular and accepted. What was in the list of wickedness few years ago is no longer there and has become accepted things. Its true with Christians also. Many things which are forbidden in the word of God is slowly creeping in and is becoming part of normal life. Tolerance is a good things but sometimes it can become dangerous in the sense that slowly it can make us cold. Last days I was meditating on a verse. Let me share it with you. Mathew 24:10-13:-

"At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved."
In these verses when J…

Moral Purity in a Corrupt World

We are living in the information age. People have so many ways to get connected to each other. With the wide spread use of Internet came the popularity of services like email, chat, social networking etc. In many cases, privacy of people is compromised as most of the information about a person can be found out with the click of a button. Sometime ago I was reading an article in a leading Journal as how people check social networking sites to find information about a boy or girl when some marriage proposals come. The downside of all this is that people have access to so much information and materials again at just the click of a button. Most of the things we get at the click of a biutton though is not beneficial. Many times it can becomes dangerous.

A common issue expressed by many young people is their addiction to Internet and especially to the filth which is available free of cost. It's free of cost at times but people forget that they are paying a heavy price in regard to destr…
