My character (the violin player) is in this position through every fault of his own. He's mourning his own life. He isn't dead, but he feels like he should be. He's lost everything, his reputation, his wife and his home. All through the selfish love of having money'and what has it brought him? NOTHING but heartbreak and sorrow. He gave up on something that he couldn't live without and now he's realised his evils, he can't stop thinking about how his love of music and his talent could have got him somewhere. It's all passed him by. He could have been someone but ended up throwing it all away. I don't want you to pity this man, feel sorry for him or want to help him. Just know that when you are told that it's never too late, that's when you have to realise that it really is. It is something that no one can control, the only thing you can do is put your everything into fighting away the evils that cross your path and tempt you into walking a worse one.
Main Connection: 1 Timothy 6:10 'For the love of money is a source of all kinds of evil.' The biblical connection to my story is the fact that my character has a love of money and it ends up being his evil, along with the choices he makes and the evils has has within himself, the people he ends up stumbling across and the path he ends up taking, it all end up in one big mess and he is then therefore suffering from many sorrows. There is another line from the bible that I drew inspiration from, it reads 'So then, if we have food and clothes, that should be enough for us.' (1 Timothy 6:8) My character has both of these but still isn't happy. However, he doesn't realise this until its all gone. This story to me is important because of the lessons it teaches and the fact the main character is based on so many of the people that surround me and also based on the fear that I have inside myself.
