Not all of humanity are scum. There are, however people who can be considered as scum, and they know who they are. There are always those who are worth saving provided that there is a higher deity in the first place.

Jesus chose to die for our sins because, while some may say he doesn't give a damn and why doesn't he stop this and that, he really cares and loves his creation.
He has great mercy, and while it may be really easy for him to let us all just destroy ourselves and send everyone to hell, he has made it possible for all those who ask for forgiveness to be forgiven and be saved.
He's also a righteous God and he has to punish sin, he will not make anyone who doesn't want to be forgiven or believe in him by force. He will honor the choice people have made to turn away from him and will have them deal with the consequences of such a decision.
God tells us that the majority of the people love sin and will never choose him over it. God would love to gives us as much time as possible to see the errors of our ways and get back to loving him, but he states that he has to cut the days short because if he didn't we would end up completely and utterly destroying ourselves off the planet.

Why would any Higher Deity want to save humans?
Because we asked.
