And why not help! If God is a Trini and we are fellow Trinidadians then we Trinis are born with innate warmth and hospitable characteristics. Our natural response to persons in need should then be mirrored in God’s principal golden rule for humanity, “Treat others as you would like people to treat you” (Luke 8:31). I am certain that should this country fall victim to a similar disastrous fate, we Trinis would want our CARICOM brothers to respond in like manner!
If we follow a God of love, why then should our innate response be otherwise? This is what is expected of us as a country of God-given wealth! Trinidad and Tobago was recently classed as being one of the top three countries, with a high GDP per capita in the Americas. The top country being the US.
