Comparing individually, many animal species on the Earth are superior to human beings. Yet, human beings can manage the Earth and distinguish different species into their own categories. People battled with all kinds of difficulties in the past, largely based on our willingness to help each other. However, history reminds us that when people have achieved success and manipulated all kinds of social resources, our focus would only situate on what we possess. As a result, we may become more indifferent to others’ needs. Take it to extremes, we may turn into being hostile individuals.

The Bible says, “The houses will be richly stocked with goods you did not produce. You will draw water from cisterns (meaning: a container for storing and holding liquids) you did not dig, and you will eat from vineyards and olive trees you did not plant. When you have eaten your fill in this land, be careful not to forget the LORD, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. – Adopted from the Book of Deuteronomy 6:11, New Living Translation (NLT)”. The Scripture reminds us that – what we own today is not something we should strive for. Indeed, they are granted by grace, and thus we do not need to protect them with our own strength. As we are predicting for more challenges, it is time to pause, reflect and change our behaviors.

In a nutshell, I hope to bring out an idea that could be applied in each of your daily lives-to care more about your neighbors. We should cease from being a selfish individual and turn to become individuals that are considerate to the things around us. Besides, we can always assist and look after the people in desperate needs and even sufferings. Hopefully, we unite and construct our society into a better place for the next generations together-an environment that are more inclusive to people from all walks of life and different colors.
