Why Are We Responsible For Others?

On this Palm Sunday it is good for each of us to remember that as a human being, you are responsible for your fellow human’s welfare. First with your family. Second with your neighbors and fellow countrymen and third with those who are strangers in nationality, culture and heritage. GOD gave us the Second Great Commandment to follow. Not as a suggestion, but a commandment.

As strange as it may sound to some, it’s also why we fight wars and have police. To oppose tyrants and defend the weak and impose law and order and maintain peace.

This is why we maintain a government. This is why we (at least those of us with a sense of responsibility and duty) pay taxes and do volunteer work and have jobs and give to charity.

Something to take to heart and take home to think about.
