Charity Begins at Home

16 Jul

As human beings continue to suffer increasingly tough times, it has become more necessary than ever that one should be on the lookout for needy persons. More often than not, the persons in need are found in our close vicinity. It can be a family member living some place far away, or it could be the next door neighbor. It needs to be stressed that if one helps the people he thinks most definitely require help, then it would not only help in adequate fulfillment of their needs and social bonding, but develop a network whereby every needy person can acquire help from their neighbor.

It is wisely said that a man is best known to the people amidst whom he lives. His habits, passions and dreams are not invisible to his acquaintances that surround him. Therefore, if that man is in the want of help, then it can be best provided by the people that socially encircle him. Adequate fulfillment can only take place when the actual needs are satisfied. By helping a close kin or a neighbor where they require aid the most can be the source of true contentment.

Where one kin moves heavens and earth to fulfill the needs of another, such acts contribute to strong familial bonding. Such assistances give birth to honest emotions through which every brother thinks and does the best for the other. Family, a core unit of society, when becomes bonded together in the times of trouble, the society itself becomes intransigent in times of crises.

In a society, where one brother is prepared to sacrifice for the other and a neighbor compromises his wishes over the needs of his neighbor, such society becomes the hallmark of human civilization. Teeming with spirit of helping one another, there develops a network of people who help the crises-stricken population. Only by wishing good for our closest, can we begin to contemplate the best for our people.

Human societies cannot evolve if the only thing that concerns them is the happiness of the other. Societies that followed such path doomed for good. Assisting in crunch times by aiding in a way that effectively satiates the desires of others is the true way of human success. By supporting others, we support humanity.
