It is not the least to say that every human should be committed solely to doing good whether or not under supervision. The good that men do lives after them and goes before them in their lifetime.
Money is the root of all evil. Money has its way of attracting people. These and more are statements people make to justify the evil they do but self-control can help overcome whatever tactics it is money brings with a determined mind to do only what is right as against temptation.
