Ex-principal jailed 9 weeks
He may not have been a role model before but he is in the manner he had confessed and asked his wife's forgiveness.
It took me a long time to go beyond what is often offered as the reasons why men stray (women will increasingly too as they close the gap with men). I am not going into the reasons but what is material is that if you as John the Baptist say, "He must increase and I must decrease" You will never betray your wife. That's why King David strayed, his son Solomon even more, but the humble Apostles, daily overwhelmed by the Lord's grace could not even be tempted.
I worry that when we have leaders who are not humble, will increasingly be exposed to more severe temptations as they acquire more status and power. If one have to always resist temptation, it is often not a matter of if but when he succumbs.
The late Dr. Toh Chin Chye, whiter than white was a humble man.
I almost forget to add that it is not that difficult to appear humble too. The hardest thing in the world is judging a person's character. Our track record is abysmal.
