Essay About Equal Dignity

Dignity comes from the Latin word dignitas and from the word dagnus means “deserve or capable”. Dignity means being capable to be valued and respected from you, whatever the age, form, and level of ability.

They say “Do unto others as you would want others to do unto to you”. What is bad for you is also bad for others. Love your neighbor just like how you love yourself. It is simply a sign that you are recognizing their dignity which posses by humanity. God created man in his own likeness and image, therefore, your dignity comes from our God. 

There are times when we are inquisitive and asked ourselves—“Why we are different from others?”, “why there are rich and poor people?”, “why people have various physical attributes, intellect, and moral abilities? Why there is an imbalance in terms of benefits received from commerce and distribution of wealth?”  Even the talents are distributed unfairly. 

Not all we want in life will be ours, for it is just for our own improvement and interest. We need our neighbors in order to have that equal dignity. You become productive when you work with them and most especially you become a good citizen. So if ever you were given talents by God, you need to use and share it with others, for “no one is an island”. And those differences are your assets for you to live fruitfully and be functionally helpful to others as well. God wanted us to be generous to others as we open our arms in receiving blessings to Him. 

Because of dignity, we have the right to improve and develop ourselves without hurting others. In the eyes of God, we are equal. Therefore, you must treat your neighbor as a son of God who has dignity. With this, everything will be in serene and harmony.
