So much have been reported on the printed and online media, you can read all you want. In politics there are no friends forever, and no enemies forever, that's what people say.
What are we expecting from those folks who are suddenly elevated to positions of power and hang a Yang Berhormat title before their names? Just because they are swept into position during the anti-BN wave of March 8th, we expect them to be more than human? The YB, by the way, translates into "The Respected Ones".
We expect them to look in contempt the millions of ringgit offered to them (allegedly) to jump ship? We expect them to say no to the luxuries and wealth that each of us secretly long for in our hearts? Big cars, towering mansions, overseas holidays, trophies of wealth... things that our society declare to be symbols of success in this world, we expect the YBs to shun away from?
I don't even expect pastors to do that, let alone politicians. Even though I really hope they do.
We expect the Perak Sultan in all his wisdom and high moral ground, to make a wise and fair decision that pleases all?
Are we expecting too much from mere men? The Book suggests a "better" way, if you dare to believe it.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to depend on people.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to depend on human leaders.
Don't put too much hope on me too. I am going to disappoint you someday, and I apologize in advance.
