Several days ago, I went to the cinema and watched Vicky Donor. It is a Bollywood movie. The movie was great. It serves the audience with good acting, sweet songs, wonderful dancing, and incredible plot.
The film was about a man; named Vicky (starred by Ayushmann Khurrana), who becomes a sperm donor. Initially, he did not agree with sperm donor because for him, “producing” sperm needs love. Totally agree with you, Vicky. Unfortunately, he finally agreed to do sperm donor because he needs money and Dr. Chaddha (starred by Annu Kapoor) kept persuading him to do it.
Regardless of the pros and cons of sperm donor, this film brings good value to be noted.
There was a scene when Vicky and his girlfriend, Ashima (starred by Yami Gautam), agreed to get marry. Before they get marry, Ashima told the truth to Vicky that she is a widow. She wanted the marriage to be started with pureness. No lies. Different from Ashima, Vicky did not tell her the truth that he is a sperm donor. He was afraid Ashima will be disappointed and might left him.
In short, they got married. Problem came. They can’t have baby. They went to many doctors but never success. Ashima wondered, was it she or Vicky the one that be the problem. All this time, only Ashima got tested by the doctors. She was angry and questioned Vicky, is he fertile or not. She asked Vicky to be tested as well. Vicky refused. Finally, Vicky honestly told Ashima he is fertile and it can be proved by successful sperm he had donor.
If you were Ashima, what do you think about your spouse who deceived to you? What will you feel about him/her?
For me, personally, it taught me to be honest about ourselves. As God taught us to be honest to Him, He wants us to be honest to everyone. Whether you realize or not, being honest is a very good thing, and it will not bring you to a gap of problem. Moreover, God promises us that we will be healed when we are honest, when we confess our sins to each other.
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” – James 5:16 NIV
GOD BLESS YOU! 🙂
Hi Anne 🙂
Yes, I agree with you. Somehow, I also feel that honest would just not have hurt someone else, but also the one who being honest. When we are going to tell the truth, we must be feeling afraid to be ignored and refused. Afraid that we won’t be forgiven. And this feeling hurts a lot.
But, after telling the truth, fight those bad feelings, what come next is a relief. A happiness that God would smile to see us.
God bless you, Anne 🙂
Hi Margaretha, yes I agree but what I was referring to was when not revealing the Truth or even lying is more beneficial then doing so. I will leave a link of a woman that disguised herself and pretended to be someone she wasn’t but for good reasons and of course there have been others who did the same.
Anne Franks Parents hid Jews as did other Germans to save their lives and lied to those who wanted to kill them saying they did not know where they were and so did the Prostitute who hid Joshua and Caleb in the Bible. Then there are Spies who saved many lives during the war . Brother Andrew and others like him smuggle Bibles into China etc in their suitcases and lie they don’t have any, all these People lie for good reasons, it seems there are white lies but of course not for the reasons some lie and call them white, these they are indeed black lies.
God tells us He judges our motivation in what we do even when we do wrong but of course there is wrong that is very wrong and has no excuse and these people must be rebuked and warned, heart repentance will bring God’s forgiveness and good feelings as you shared.
Christian Love Anne.
Hi Margaretha, thank you, how very important honesty is, I value it highly because so does God but recently I found myself in a situation that to be honest would have hurt someone else maybe more then one person, what do you think you would do if it was you? and if you didn’t tell the Truth would you be held accountable.
Christian Love Anne
