Religion And Life Essay, Research Paper
Do you know why people are brought to life? Do you know what is the role of religion in life? These two things are the most important things that we have to know about and realize their importance in life.
People are brought to life to serve the world, each other, and the creatures living on it. Nevertheless, God has given us the power of controlling, managing and taking care of every single thing on this planet; as well as, helping other people with their problems and life. This is due to the fact that it is the nature of human beings to have differing ranks amongst themselves. For example, on this beautiful planet there are rich and poor people, and people who are in between. This leads to the neediness of the higher ranks for the poor who are lower in rank, to be the labor that is needed.
Unfortunately, these days there are few people who think about others and the environment in which they live. This is mainly because of their hectic lifestyles and not being able to spend some of their precious time for these things, as well as not giving an importance to it.
People have to know that we have to take care of everything on this world, even a small plant so that the world stays in peace. In contrast, this plant may get scarce in the future. This is due to some lack of caring for it, as well as human beings and other creatures, because we also have a role on this planet and are responsible for it. These days everyone is aware of the wars and problems that exist between two or more neighboring countries, for silly and unworthy reasons. People are getting killed for no reason and many suffer as well. If things do get better and the wars end, still not that many people care for the other people who are suffering because of war and in need for medical supplies.
People are able to solve the problems without even war, or in other words, without harming others and making them suffer. The best solution for these kinds of problems is religion. If everyone satisfies his/her religious principles, the world will be at peace. Because every single religion has mentioned that we have to take care of our world and its creatures and that we are responsible for it. There will be specific goals to be achieved according to each religion. So, we have to give our time and attention to the things which are much more important than anything else.
The first main reason why the world’s situation is getting worse and worse is the standardized exchange item, which is called “money”. In developed countries, people are spending most of their time working to earn more money so that they can maintain a high standard of living. Unfortunately, they are not ready to divide their time between work and the other part for other things. To be more specific, they could work for half a day and earn enough money, to live a simple life without any complications. Doing this, people will be able to give some of their time for others, and to the most important people in their lives, their children.
In rich families, there are few disciplined children, and this is simply because of the business of their parents, which unfortunately leads to the destruction of their family through not being organized. In other words, money is not the most important thing in life, neither is property. Spending more time with family and other members of the family insures the parent the possibility for their children that outside social influences are lessened. The influences, which are negative for the children’s healthy upbringing, could be consumerism, T.V. violence, and drugs (even in Muslim countries).
The poor handicapped people, who are thrown in their special handicapped house, far away from others, interfered with other handicapped people and with few people visiting them from our society. Aren’t they one of us? Don’t they look like us? Even if they look different, they are one of us, and because of God’s will they look abnormal, and it’s because of our carelessness we throw them far away and not care for them. They are innocent people who never wished this to happen to them. This is God’s will and his test for us, to see how we care for his creatures, and this is why we never get finished with our problem, either environmental or social. What’s happening to us; there is a reason for it.
Why don’t we get together and form unity among ourselves so that we lessen the problems of the world and satisfy our religious principles and goals. Also end the conflicts between the religions that have been created, because “Religion should be the cause of love and unity….” We have to take care of this wealth, which is from our creator, God. “We are all leaves of one tree and the fruits of one branch, and drops of one ocean.” All this can be simplified into a short sentence, “The earth is but one country, and man kind its citizens.”
