How many ways you can define the word "usefulness" ?
The word "usefulness" can not really stand on its own. When we use it, we always associate it with different objects, aspects, situations and more. I am interested to know if anyone can sum up the number of ways it can be used. The angles could be anything - funny, grave, satirical, innocent, regular etc.
Hi Roselyn I have no idea if the way I respond to your question is relevant or not but here goes...
1. Being useful means you can be in for the long haul and build up a legacy to leave behind.
2. Being useful is like cement, your actions are tangible and reliable.
3. Being useful is like bricks and mortar. It makes you a guaranteed entity which means you become bankable literally and metaphorically.
4. Being useful can mean you become deadweight. Too known and too boring.
5. Being useful is like becoming a Tower on high beam where others may want to emulate you to produce the same or similar results.

Does the number of real life friends a person have define them?In other words, is the number of friends that a person has important? Do outsiders see it as a status booster or a status dropper?

How do you define the word "Christian"?The word Christian is used so casually anymore. I often wonder if people really understand what it means to be a true Christian. Is it just all about religion, or is there a deeper meaning? I am curious to hear your thoughts.
