Tragedy or a Wake Up Call?
I hesitate even saying anything about Anna Nicole Smith, but I feel that I must. Her story is tragic on so many different levels. It is tragic that she died so young. It is tragic that her child is now without a mother. It is tragic that so many people want her fortune, sinking to the most despicable of levels. It is tragic that we treated her with any interest whatsoever. But, what is most tragic is her eternal destiny. She experienced personal demons that destroyed her; but, if she rejected Christ, those demons have become infinitely more painful. It is my prayer that people see her life and her death as a wake up call. Hollywood has very little, if anything, redeeming and important to say about what truly matters in life. We must not idolize that which is evil. It only leads to destruction. Wake up America! Over-indulgence and sexual immortality are not what they are cracked up to be. Contentment, peace, joy and hope are found only in Christ Jesus!
