Gradually the position of humanity amongst human is weakening as the so-called human beings refuse to live together in oneness as they should. The truth is, not all human being on earth possess the spirit of humanity. To be more consciousness of the level of humanity in any individual, one has to take note of the way they show compassion on people who they know they won’t receive anything in return from them.
Most people who are referred to as human beings fail to fill the space of humanity on earth; some of them do not know that humanity is caring, it is forgoing ones’ self-interest in pleasing others and also assisting others when all hope is gone, and they least expect help from anyone at the moment. Humanity is giving and sharing without expecting a return in the benevolence rendered, it is also showing and giving unconditional love to people even when they are undeserving.
We live in a world where most people are after their own interest, leaving out the importance of other people’s interest who are in dire need of help. Most times, they claim that they don’t have enough resources to help others who might need basic amenities they could spare.
We live in a world that millions of people in different parts of the country go to bed on an empty stomach because they cannot afford to fend for themselves. Some people cannot afford to have three square meals, some families don't have a roof over their head while some don’t have anyone close to family. It’s all in different phases.
Often times, the senior members of society have a tendency of suffering from this insensitivity of our shared society. These people are sometimes abandoned and treated inadequately which is a slap in the face to all humankind.
There is no need for huge money in the bank account to contribute to helping the needy. Sometimes just little things like emotional support, a few bucks where you can, lending a hand to the blind as they cross the road, relieving an older person of their heavy load, assisting a stranded stranger get to their place of destination. These few things matter and count and they would never be forgotten in the history of mankind.
On the other hand, humans tend to forget that anything that is done; either good or bad deeds that have been done would be remembered when the time comes. However, in the process of contributing to humanity – human beings provide help for various reasons. Human beings have many different reasons for rendering assistance.
There is a need for human beings to appreciate the significance of humanity in their day to day activities. If they understand and appreciate the importance of humanity, people would live together in peace.
Human beings should also understand the fact they are lucky to possess some essential things other people could not have at the time they need them. This should steer and trigger feelings in human beings to help people who might be in a needy situation. If we understand the reason for humanity, our lives as humans living on earth would be made easier.
