“Gloria how must I live through God then?” asked Ashley. Gloria continued “Ashley you must remember to love everyone as love overcomes selfishness, you must also swear to be kind to everyone including yourself because kindness replaces indifference to the needs of others and goodness replaces vices and the seven deadly sins”.
There was a little girl called Ashley, who was always overcontrolling and selfish. Ashley only ever acted like this so she could try fit in and act the same as certain people to try to make friends, but by doing this she was caving in to peer pressure.
Gloria's last words to Ashley were “change your actions and then live through the fruits of the spirit and commit yourself to God and teach others the way that I have taught you”.
One day Ashley was muttering to herself about how no one was listening and being kind to her when she heard someone call her name.
“Ashley” called a voice. Ashley turned to see a girl as sweet as an angel standing in front of her. “Who are you,” asked Ashley. “I am the angel Gloria, the Lord has sent me to speak with you”. Ashley stood there startled as Gloria shared her news and words. “Ashley the Lord knows how you have been treating others and understands you want to fit in, but be kind to people and people will treat you the same in return.” “You have acted in the ways of selfishness and this is not the way of the Lord”.
Ashley promised herself that she would never treat people the way she had before and instead share kindness and love as Gloria had done with her.
