In all of our pursuits in life, in all that we do, our motives matter a lot. It'll always reveal itself irrespective of whatever smokescreen we have used to cover it.
Time will tell...
Many a times people take the easy way out, break rules and get away with it. It happens most especially in countries where lawlessness, corruption and cheating is the order of the day.
My dear country, Nigeria is a typical example. Leaders rig elections and get away with it, citizens cheat and get away with it. Public funds are being mismanaged by people in positions of authority, and they get away with it still.
Men, women, boys and girls have seared their conscience (with hot iron), they've conditioned the voice of their human spirit to make them feel guiltless without remorse, but time will tell.
These can only be for the while the lifespan of the results of these acts would last. Good will always come to the fore. Good will always prevail against evil. The voice of the good and genuinely lawful people will come to fore. The results of evil will also reveal itself irrespective.
In all that we do, let's take out time to search our soul and check our motives. It matters a great deal.
