Dupe was worried. What has she done? She has broken his heart. She didn’t mean to. He has left her. She lost both ways. This all happened in a twinkle of an eye. If Only she had been patient.
She was in a relationship with George all this while… A beautiful relationship it was. They had it all.
God fearing background. Knew they were meant for each other. Only for the devil to strike his ugly head.
Bible says in Pro 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.
She left her heart exposed and the devil took advantage of it. The lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, also came into play.
She met Smith at Work, who was newly employed. He had the eyes for her. He was handsome, tall, had a good accent and was very friendly with her. Always on her tail, gisting, going to eat together to the extent of him calling her late at night.
Her mistake: She never told George anything about him. She started getting fond of him, her feelings for George was in doubt. She began to dislike his calls, dislike him from visiting her, finding faults with him.
It got so bad, that they had a fight and she said so many harsh words towards him, because of her feelings for the other guy. George was hurt, crushed and pained! He ended the relationship with her.
He couldn’t imagine what he had done wrong, because this attitude had repeated itself over and over
Meanwhile, Smith took advantage of her and played her with other girls. Eventually he told her he couldn’t marry her. She was devastated.
George wasn’t taking her calls, or trying to listen to her. She cried….Oh!
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
What has she done? She had allowed the devil in. She allowed herself to be lured away.
-Keep your heart guarded at all times
-Dislodge from too friendly opposite genders
-Tell your partner of any new development
-Talk, Talk, Talk with your partner.
The devil indeed comes to steal, kill and destroy, be sober! Be vigilant!
