Falling in Love with Jesus—Again!
“Do you have a boyfriend?” questioned her professor. Then, in a voice both firm and loving, Dr. Tan said, “Kasey, you need to protect yourself…and your purity. Purity is very important for a girl, and precious in God's sight.”
Kasey had come to Dr. Tan's office to discuss her thesis. But now, she was being asked about her personal life! Had her behavior betrayed her dark secret? Could someone have told Dr. Tan about her affair? She didn't think her family or even her closest friends knew about this relationship.
Shocked that Dr. Tan had pushed the conversation beyond her thesis, Kasey lied, saying she did not have a boyfriend. Dr. Tan was a Christian and interested in the lives of all her Christian students. Kasey, an active student leader in a campus Christian club, knew she could not respond directly to Dr. Tan's statement about purity. So, with flushed face, she exited the office as quickly as possible.
