God Cares, But Do We? is a perceptive book that aims to encourage its readers to ponder whether they’ve shown kindness to their peers in as much greatness as God wants them to.

Anyone should be familiar with the quote, “a little kindness goes a long way.” One act of kindness can bring upon someone the choice to pay it forward and, likewise, be kind to another person. This exchange goes on, with the gesture passed from one person to another, thus causing a rippling effect of the behavior.

The concept of kindness has existed since time immemorial. It’s always been a staple for people, something they desire to receive, thus encouraged throughout time. Kindness is a solid foundation for other values to develop. Moreover, it’s also one of the core values that can help make people great at the things they do. Yet, despite what people may gain through it, some still lack the capacity to be kind enough to others.

God Cares, But Do We?

Through poetry, author Kwaku Mensah discussed in his book how essential it is for people to be each other’s keepers. Being each other’s keepers means that people should take care and be kind to each other, for, through this, they can be uplifted and drawn closer to God. In God Cares, But Do We? Likewise, Mensah explores the powerful concept of reciprocal respect – respect given by each toward the other – as well as listening and being liable for one’s behavior. He highlights these points above anything else, believing that people’s mistreatment of each other is one of the principal causes of their suffering.

As with the title, Mensah aims to show that God cares for everyone, and in return, they should share selfless love not just with Him but with each other. God Cares, But Do We? calls attention to the fact that everyone has the freedom to decide how they treat others regardless of their race or sex, whether they will treat them as part of a greater spiritual family. One of the prime messages established throughout the book is people’s responsibility and capacity to care about others, just as how God cares for them.

Am I my brother’s keeper?

Nowadays, Cain’s words from the Bible symbolize people’s unwillingness to accept responsibility for others’ well-being. However, when Mensah mentioned how people need to be each other’s keepers, he meant looking out for each other, that if one desires to influence the world and live by the Bible, they should take this phrase by heart and practice it. Being each other’s keepers means taking care and offering help to each other wholeheartedly as if they’re related by blood, without asking for any compensation.

Additionally, according to the Bible, “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a sister, or a brother is a liar. For whoever does not love their sisters and brothers, whom they have seen cannot love God, whom they haven’t.” This speaks a lot to what being “each other’s keepers” is all about. Loving, respecting, and showing kindness to each other should become a custom for anyone who wishes to be closer to God and wishes to live like him.
