ANY WAY IS A WAY………Pt 1
The Quest for money, wealth and fame among youths today is alarming. Everyone wants to get rich overnight not minding the consequences that follow these actions.
“Any way is a way”, most of them will say. But I keep asking, “which way is better, GOD’S way or ANY way?”
These “get rich quick” mentality has eaten deep into the fabric of our nation, leading to mass decadence. Youths now indulge in all sort of “illegit” and evil activities just to get MONEY. Both male and female do not want to see the light at the end of the tunnel or the silver linen behind the cloud. They do not care about the future for they are myopic and extremely covetous.
“The end will justify the means”, they will say. But I also ask, “which of the ends, Heaven or Hell?”
Gone are those days when I thought prostitution was gender-specifically engaged by females. But it is quite disheartening that we now have male prostitutes. When you ask them, 90% would tell you they have no money. So, any way is okay by them, as long as the cash is flowing in.
- Internet Fraud/Scam(cyber-crime)
- prostitution, cultism, kidnapping
- child trafficking
- hard drug smuggling and a whole lot of others are ways youth deem fit to make money. They do not think about the consequences or their dignity and reputation which is at stake. They do not think about the pains they inflict on others or the shame they bring upon themselves, family and friends. All they keep saying is “ANY WAY IS A WAY”………..but I tell you, “there is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverb 16:25)
I have never seen a successful man who made it by hook or by crook. If he does, it won’t last for a long time. I stand to be corrected……………………….
