It is Unfortunate That so Many Seek the Ways of the Devil

Sometimes things happen that are not so good.  This is 'Unfortunate'.

"For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord."
-- Romans 6:23

Some decisions we have to make in life can be very hard.

Like when Ariel Finds this guy, and she thinks he is attractive.
She kinda wants to spend time with him.  Lots of Time.
So she went to the nearest person who could give her Immediate Gratification.

Ariel Foolishly signed a Contract 'For ALL Eternity'.

Satan (the Sea Witch) puts on a pretty good show, and Ariel got a good set of Legs.  However, Satan will not care if you dont know how to swim with legs, and drown before even finding Prince Eric.

Satan will give you everything you want, and he gives it to you right away.  However the one thing you Should want the he cannot give you is Eternal Life.

"And thus we see that the devil
will not support his children at the last day,
but doth speedily drag them down to hell."

Eternal Life is the Greatest gift that God can give us, but we must Patiently Endure to the End, being obedient to His Commandments.

Getting something that we think is good now, isn't what is always best for us in the long term.

God will never ask us to give away our talents as payment for his blessings.  He gave us our Talents in the first place, and wants us to share them to bless the lives of others.  He gives open reward when we seek to develop and improve our talents.

Ariel's talent was Singing, and 'the devil' took it away.


"And so he that had received five talents came
and brought other five talents, saying,
Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents:
behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
His lord said unto him,
Well done, thou good and faithful servant:
thou hast been faithful over a few things,
I will make thee ruler over many things:
enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

"I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth:
lo, there thou hast that is thine.
His lord answered and said unto him,
Thou wicked and slothful servant,
thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not,
and gather where I have not strawed:
Take therefore the talent from him,
and give it unto him which hath ten talents."
