One would have thought that either the large number of Christians, men of God or Churches in the society is an effective broom to sweep off dishonesty and the various social ills in existence today. Disappointedly the contrary is the case. So I ask, Where are the saints on earth? Where are the chosen ones to sanitize the system? Has honesty become a taboo? Are the beautiful ones yet to be born?
In a society where corruption is the order of the day, honest people are in the minority and in most cases they suffer or are victimized, oppressed and intimidated for sounding differently.Such experiences however should not make them join the band wagon. They should distinguish themselves and press harder to effect some positive changes in order to achieve reformation and wipe to the bearest minimum every negative act.
There are traces of dishonesty in every phase of life including the various homes which form the micro-society. Since this seems an inheritance in most homes, this ill keeps multiplying on daily basis. The result is that member of different families give to the society that which they received from their various homes and create more problems in the society.
These dishonest practices of some Adults in our various homes have some multiplier effects on the larger society. By implication such sharp practices directly or indirectly metamorphose into bribery and corruption at different levels with all their consequences on the society. The younger generation copy exactly what they see the adults do, add a few of their own and become worse than their elders. Then if this be the case, where do we go from here?
Many leaders at different levels are not leading by example, so our high expectations of the led are serious errors because they cannot act differently. These negative attitudes need God’s special intervention followed by the peoples’ remorsefulness, repentance and consequent turning of a new leaf. This process will finally sanitize the system, stimulate the fear of God in us and bring us closer to God to enjoy God’s abundant blessings in a more relaxed and friendly environment.
