About this book


Seeing what it did to people around did not make a difference. You know what they say about greed, lust, covetousness and lack of contentment. They are cancers that eat deep into you and hang on like leeches. They don't let go until you make a conscious effort to accept you have a problem, seek divine help and pray you are delivered. But despite being knowledgeable about these things, we sometimes live in denial. The truth is I always prided myself on having self-control and knowing right from wrong. I was able to accept my faults and try to do something about them. Especially when it came to the kind of example my father was setting for me. I remember growing up with a father who would not keep his eyes in one place; he chased everything in skirts. At some point, I realised how much he was hurting my mother and asked him why he had to keep stepping out on her. His response was Laughter, followed by a weird look at me as if I was delusional. As I listened to him try to explain the reason why he cheated, I could not believe the words coming out of his mouth. My father, an elder in the church, whom everyone respected and looked up to. I knew he should not act this way. How can he have two personalities? However, on that day, I realised Chief Benson, my father, had cancers, as the pastor called it, and he didn’t even know. He had lust and covetous cancer; that was my conclusion. So I decided I was not going to be like my father. However, something happened and I found myself biting off more than I could chew, Noticed an error in this book? Send a mail to flag@okadabooks.com to report it
