Life's Not All About Money

I've learned something this morning which leaves me thinking up to this very moment. I know, I'm not supposed to be worrying about the "future" as early as now. But, I couldn't help it.

I want a complete family, I'm sure about that. However, there are "some people" who seem to be getting in the way so I won't be able to achieve this. What are "their" reason? Well, it's all about the MONEY! MONEY! and MORE MONEY! And honestly, I'm not too happy about it. I don't know why "some people" are so selfish to the extend that they deprive others from being together and from being happy. They think that if "we" are already together as a family, money will not anymore come their way. Why, is life just all about money? What about family? Health? Character? Aren't those factors more important?

I don't understand why in our society some people look at money as the most important thing or factor in order to be happy and contented. They say, "Money is Power". Yes, indeed, it is! But do you think it's right to put money on top of everything, even on top of family and character?

I really feel sad how money can transform a person's character from being humble and happy even with just simple things to discontented and selfish. How I wish "these people" will realize as early as now that there are more important things than money.

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” - Hebrews 13:5

Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.
