Gone are the days when help was readily offered by friends, colleagues, relatives and even neighbours. A trial or difficulty of a person was felt by all who were close to him. A financial difficulty was one which was borne by all who were close to the one in need.
Is it the same scenario today? If no, then why?
In our modern day, the kind of help that was one way or the other given readily is no more available. The reason for such a situation is that many people who have attained assistance have disappointed those who rendered it.
Monies are borrowed and never repaid, trust is broken and friendships are lost easily. We now find ourselves in situations whereby individuals who can help others in financial or any other needs are unprepared to do so because of their previous experiences.
To those who do not appreciate the assistance rendered to them should know that it is not prudent to block someone’s opportunities because of your refusal to be simply appreciative or trust worthy.
Also, to those who refuse to help others in the name of broken trust, would you refuse to ever eat because food choked you? Certainly not! Never cease to aid others because you were paid with evil.
