I am Suleiman from Edo state Nigeria, I am very new to Tribe and this will be my first article.
I was discussing with my friends yesterday about the main reason why people who are well to do find it difficult to help the Needy.
My own opinion on this topic are clearly stated on this article.
Generally if the entire wealth in the world were to be evenly distributed, I think everybody would be able to live a comfortable life.
Though i’m not from a very wealthy family, but personally, I have never missed 3 square meals a day, a very big thank you to my family for that.
HERE ARE MY OWN PERSONAL OPINIONS ON WHY I FEEL PEOPLE FAIL TO HELP THE NEEDY!
Greed is the biggest problem we have in the world today, whereby 80% of wealth are controlled by only 10-20% of the worlds population.
For instance, people wants to own a large number of real estate whereas some people out there find it difficult to afford 1 square meal a day.
If the money spent by some billionaires on acquiring the most expensive cars and Hotels, were spent in orphanage homes poverty will be reduced by about 10%. I ask myself everyday, “what is the need of having more than one house when you can only sleep in one at a time”?
2. NO BODY WILL COME TO THEM FOR HELP IF THEY HELP THE LESS PRIVILEGE .
In my own opinion, I think one of the reasons why some rich people find it difficult to help the less privilege is probably because the enjoys the fact that people always come to them for help on a regular basis. They feel if they help the poor to secure a life for themselves, no body will come to them for help anymore. This is directly related to greed. They always want to be the center of attraction why others be the followers.
3.SOME RICH PEOPLE FEELS THAT GIVING HELP TO THE POOR WILL DEGRADE THEIR SOCIAL STATUS.
Well I am not going to lay more emphasis on this, some certain rich people feel disgusted when they are even in close proximity with poor people.
This is from a personal experience.
4.MAJORITY OF THEM GENERALLY DON’T HAVE A GIVING HEART.
This is the greatest form of greed people like this are never contented, they might have plan to make a thousand dollar a week a soon as they get a thousand dollar that week, they start striving for more.
In conclusion, you don’t need to have the entire world before you can help people, always share the little you have! how you were able to help people when you have $10 will determine how you will help people if you have $1000. ” When you have more than enough build a longer table not a taller fence”
