A conflict with God

A man goes to church only to look for his pet and wasn’t able to find it. He felt reluctant and shirked from it. Eventually he had to take care of what appeared to be adequate substitutes. As he drew closer to God, he prayed for his pet to come back but still had to take care of other people’s pets (including those he doesn’t like) and eventually other people.

Though he still wanted a pet, he had to look after his neighbours’ families and give his belongings away to the poor. Time has passed, he still feels haunted by his pet. He still loves it but feels like an idol that betrayed him. Then the pet returned and he took care of it but the enthusiasm wasn’t the same. He set his eyes on God instead and did everything to honour him from now on.
