Ecclesiastes 8:11 “When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, the hearts of the people are filled with schemes to do wrong.”

This verse is a very interesting comparison of dealing with man’s moral Will.  The gist of it is…”If I see someone getting away with evil and not getting caught or punished for it, I might as well do it too!”  But anytime we have an improper attitude towards our fellow man, or conspire to do wrong just because we think we can…this verse warns us that our moral compass is way off.
