This story talks about Angie. She is a twenties girl, the Pastor´s daughter, who wanted to experience all the things of this world. She said ‘I am tired of being the Pastor´s daugther’ and she disobeyed her father and started to go out to nightclubs. Then she meets Devlin who is a singer. She was so delighted by the fame that he has, and he became her first love. Shortly after she preferred to go with him, than to be at the church with her real friends and her Father. Apparently Devlin loved her, but he was just taking advantage of the situation.
She continued with Devlin, thinking that she would get success : fame, luxury, money, in short, all the ephemeral things that the world has to offer. She changed her way of dressing, habits and many things just to be a famous person. (This world can offer you a lot of money, jewelry, trips, but what good will it be for a man even if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Matthew 16:26, do not be distracted or do not compare those things with the unconditional love of God. If you believe in God, He will give you all that you need).
Finally when she realized the kind of person that Devlin was, she just wanted to go home, but thought that her father would not forgive her. So she continued to suffer the ill-treatment of Devlin, but he always tried to justify his actions.
Until the day she left him. And got back home like the prodigal son in Bible. There we see the great forgiving love of her father who receives her with open arms. As the bible says: “But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found” – Luke 15:32
However it is not necessary that we all should pass through these type of cases, to realize our Heavenly Father’s abundant love for us. If you are on the right way to God, go ahead and do not stop for anything or anyone. You should accept that He guides your life because the enemy will say, “Enjoy the things of this world for now, and about the consequences we will talk later” and our lovely God says, “Believe in me and you will have eternal life”.
You choose! A short lived pleasure on earth OR eternal life with God?
