Too Many Girls (Davy and Fern)
Back Home Up Next

 

The problems in this episode come from the fact that Davy is forever falling in love with any pretty girl who happens to pass by. (By now, most people recognize this as a constant fixture of Monkee comedy.) It isnít necessarily wrong to get crushes on handsome boys or pretty girls, but when such infatuations take control of a personís life, something is definitely wrong. "The fruit of the Spirit isÖ self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23); we must therefore keep our desires in check by living within the boundaries of Godís law. If Davy had learned how to exercise self-control when it came to a pretty face, Fernís mother would never have succeeded in rooking him into a relationship/stage partnership with her daughter, and the other Monkees would have been spared a lot of heartache trying to reel him back from potential danger.
