The Bible says lies, hatred, greed, dishonesty, jealousy, envy and selfishness are considered as sinful. And we often see such characters exist among politicians.
I always believe in life one has to contribute back to the society in one way or another. We can choose to do charitable deed, donation, make policies/laws, to uphold and protect the sanctity of the supreme law / rule of law, religion etc. Participation in NGOs, political parties, associations is a good platform. All for the betterment of the nation and future generations. Everyone has a role to play to serve the country.
In order to leave a legacy, one shall has a profound conviction in exercising his or her ideals with selfless sacrifice.
Along the journey in order to remain steadfast without wavering from the noble beliefs, he must first take care of himself and family. To do that one should be financially sound (not necessarily wealthy) and stable. One must has the knowledge, determination and sincerity to do and sacrifice for what is right without fear or favour. Otherwise the temptation and undue influence will change him.
Not many is willing and able to have the strength of such integrity.
We talk about non-discriminatory mentality and look forward to a meritocratic society. However when we talk about power and opportunity, often I do not see it in BN or PH and even from my own party ie Gerakan. As the saying goes: you are either with or against us. Perhaps that is the rule of the game. That is why not everyone want to join politics or become a player.
Ultimately we can complain because rose bushes have thorns or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses. We must have a clear conscience.
