All too often, we place value in luxury, and how much money we have, and how much money we can use to buy things. Christmas and Easter and other holidays seem to be so superficial that in society, money is the emphasis and the drive to what makes something worthwhile and unless it has a monetary value attached to it, it's often not appreciated.
You've heard the saying, working yourself to death. The sad thing is, there is so much truth in that there's so many people who do. Always working to pay off a mortgage, pay their hefty taxes to society, to put basic needs in their lives, such as medical and food on the table and running electricity and gas in their home, just for a little bit of comfort.
What type of people have we become that we treat money as the root of everything and without it we are nothing. We are judged on how much we earn. We are classified into the rich or poor of society, based solely on the dollars that sit in our account or labels we wear, homes we own or the cars we drive.
Why should anyone be treated differently than the next person just because of money? It's sad but people do. Whether it is a conscious or unconscious choice, I have seen this over and over. Wouldn't it be nice if there were no labels? If money were not treated like a God. If every person were treated equal to one another, could we not still have respect? It costs nothing to be polite, or dignified towards our fellow man or even animals.
But it's disgusting when you see somebody who has money look down upon those who don't as though they are dirt and no more important than a slug. If you look at the hands of a rich person, in comparison to that of someone who is rich in their heart, you often find the hands the rich in love are dirtier than those who are rich in money. Because they work hard to provide for their loved ones and satisfy a greedy government. Because they are the underdog the ones that really are the ones that make those with the cleaner hands rich.
Unfortunately, we need money to live, we need to buy food, and sadly to breathe. Because without money we cannot live. Without money we cannot eat or drink or even have a place to rest our head. Is it all worth it in the end? We can't take the money with us. And whilst we might leave all our hard work earnings to our children, are we really leaving anything by doing that? If a child is given an estate upon the deathbed of a parent, what does this turn that child into later on? Are they appreciative, and if they've never had responsibility, how long do you really think that last without any responsibility, discipline or structure?
We come into this world with no money, and we leave this world the same way, money is a material object. But it's not worth dying for. , we all have it, we all have a way of attracting it, we all have the same hours in a day.
Money can be used for good and it can be used for evil. But it's only energy and at the end of the day it is burnt down and more and more of it is made, so in reality, there is a never ending supply. So many war over money, and it's never ending.
Always bless your money and give thanks for having received it under grace in a perfect way. With every dollar you spend bless it as it is only energy that will come and find its way back to you. When you bless it, it comes back more and more, perhaps sometimes not in its monetary form, but other forms. So live humble lives, be kind regardless of what others may class you into. Be kind to those less fortunate, and don't be afraid to thank those who have helped you build your empire. In giving, more comes your way. If you're afraid of spending your letting money control you. This means that you will always struggle with it, remember you have power over it. So pay the bills with a smile, know that you will never be without. And if you are, ask yourself why you were too scared to let go of it.
Think of the miser who died a rich person but couldn't take it with them, although saving is great, it's useless if it's never going to bring you true happiness. But remember whilst you are here live, but don't live for money alone, because it may just be the death of you.
