Money matters or matters not
Money matters or matters not » Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth, and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in ‘Money matters, matters not.
I do agree as far as we are concerned having material landmarks is success and rightly so. ‘Money matters or matters not’ When we have grown up where money matters a lot in giving us a quality life, financial freedom is a big achievement.
But I don’t think money is all that matters in life. If that was the case, Mr Ambanis would not show up for work. Shah Rukh Khan would stay at home and not perform anymore.
Steve Jobs won’t be working hard to make a better iPhone, as he sold Pixar for billions of dollars already.
Bill Gates would call it a day. But that doesn’t happen. What makes them come to work everyday? They do it because it makes them happy. They do it because it makes them feel alive.
It is true that money brings happiness to every individual. It helps us to fulfill all our wants and lead decent life. Life would be miserable in the absence of it as we cannot have our provisions bought. But money can’t buy everything for us. It cannot buy us human relationships, feelings and emotions.
The only achievement the previous century can take pride is the economic prosperity it brought to the world. But we paid a heavy price for this. In our greed for more money we destroyed our mother earth beyond any repair.
We created cities and mega cities and finally are we happy? No, on the other hand our mother earth is bleeding on account of the deep wounds caused by us.
The greed for more money has caused many more wars than what was needed. This has killed millions of people in the modern world.
I think it is enough to disprove all my worthy opponents. There are a lot of things that money can’t buy for us- like happiness, joy of doing a work well, contentment and so on.
There is no point of getting a promotion on the day of your breakup. There is no fun in driving a car if your back hurts. Shopping is not enjoyable if your mind is full of tensions.
Hence for me at least money matters only as long as it can help me matters not.
