“You cannot trap birds with a net if they see you spreading it out. But evil people cannot see the trap they set for themselves. This is what happens to those who are greedy. Whatever they get, destroys them. Prov. 1:17-19”
Prov. 1: 26
Just as snow should not fall in summer, nor rain at harvest time, so people should not honour fools. He is always at your doorstep begging for attention, asking for your sorry even when you are yet to wrong him.
Like a wicked ruler Pharaoh, he found joy in rushing at men of unquestionable characters, who dared their authorities and powers, so a wicked fool whose anger grew when they don’t get their desires met.
He would send the dreaded animals after you, he would wish they kill you and never set his eyes on you again. He would boast on top of his voice saying… “I will kill you and nothing will come out of it.” But be calm, if God is for you, ten thousand of fools are like infants who cried day and night but can’t say what they really want. A confused generation of “leaders”
I have seen criminals riding the best of cars, buying and living the best of houses and being cheered dailies as leaders but deep down inside of them, they are murderers, kidnappers, armed robbers, rapists, assassins, liars, wive snatchers, drug addicts, voodoo worshippers, manipulators, bribe takers and givers, destiny mutilators, mandates hackers, etc. Yet, they are quick to convicts innocents and hang on their neck, crime they knew nothing about. The prison yards are filled with thousands of innocent while the communities keep on celebrating the criminals in agbadas as the leaders in every streets.
They would go into the prisons, saved the most notorious inmates under the guise of amnesty, bathed them up and made them look like themselves not unto repentant rather, to empowered them, so they can do more evils for them and takeout their perceived enemies. They would go after the innocents who are good, honest, and courageous, hanged on them a label of a hardened criminals and denied them bail. This also is evil and not power. Power is not evil but men who use it to suppress others.
In our today’s society, criminals are leaders, Innocents are prisoners, and security personnels love it so…
All men are under threats to either do their bids or face the consequences. Security men were used sometimes against their will not only to arrest but sometimes to forced you into giving a fake confession or even false witness.
Judiciary because of their high level of due process and respect to the rule of law as their professional ethics demands were not free from their threats and blackmails. And sometimes in a bid to save their name and profession has no other choice than to dance to the tune of the criminals called leaders. Today many innocent souls are dying on daily basis in cells across the country, while the power drunk evil leaders celebrating their exits
Tomorrow is in the womb waiting for the delivery date, yesterday is in the tomb, buried and forgotten, but today is like a new baby born in your hands, nurse it, care for it, pay all your attention to it, because it is in it lies our greatness.
