Section-A – Read
Q-1 Read the following section carefully and answer the following questions:
Man is a sociable animal that lives in a society. His neighbors are the people who immediately surround him. Because of their proximity and constant pressure from society, they play a crucial role in our lives. Its importance was recognized by Jesus Christ more than two thousand years ago when he said in one of the Ten Commandments, “Love your neighbor as you love God.” It holds the view that God is present in all human beings. By loving our neighbors we should not only have peace and happiness, but we would also come closer to God. Just as love breeds love, when we show love and compassion we must reciprocate our neighbors. This relationship can bring immense joy and happiness into our lives as they are always there to help us in our hour of need. In today’s highly mobile and competitive society, our friends or relatives are rarely available close to where we live or around us when we need them most. Especially in these difficult times, the help and support of our immediate neighbor is a blessing to us. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we have good and friendly relations with our neighbors.
