Money is important in us anyway. We are working so hard for to receive salary to have money.I’ve been hearing people saying.“It’s so hard to earn money!”or “I need to work overtime.”. So I asked my friends this question:Why Money is Important? Everything in modern society is based on money.As The saying goes, money makes the world go around.Many young people marry for money rather than love. Security is more important than happiness.Some people in Shanghai would even trade their self-esteem for money.Students choose business courses rather than liberal arts for the sake of earning big money in the future.Very few people want to be teachers because teaching is not a lucrative profession.People are trained to be acquisitive and are not considered successful unless they make good money.Deng Xiao-ping said,"To get rich is glorious." Being poor is not very much fun.Being rich allows you to do what you want.If you are rich, many people want you for a friend. Being wealthy allows you to enjoy life to the fullest. The man who has the money makes the rules.

Money is not the most important thing in life. Yes, you need money for everything, but without love money has no value. Without love no one would be wealthy or prosperous or have a job. Without the love of God we are nothing. God is the most important thing in life. We need God who supplies all of our needs in order to survive and breath and make it in this cruel old world. Money is the root of all evil. People become greedy and starts to rob the next man for what he worked so hard for all week long. Never mind the fact that that man had children that will not be feed because of greed. We must focus on the things that really make us happy, not materialistic things that will be here one day and gone the next. Money is only temperory fullfillment. God is eternal fullfillment.

Hi I agree money is sure not the most important thing in life, but I am sure that GOD is the most important one in our live. Maybe you heard about the story of the "rich man and the poor man" in the bible. The poor man did't have money,he was serving GOD and he beg for food and but the rich man has so much money that he could have a party every day,but he did't want to hear nothing bout GOD. So when both of them past away, the poor man went on GOD hand and have peace for ever, but the rich man went for to punishment for ever. So with that we see money is not so important in live, but we need it. I would not see that money is the rood of all evil, because people are using money to do evil things. Or better Satan is using money to do evil. Reason: Because if it is the rood of all evil than we all are using something [ money] of evil. Rood mean fundamental and the fundament is were something came from, that mean money came from evil, is that so?

Hello Babu, I don't think that money is the most important thing in life.Everybody have different views about this.Like for an individual,money is vital for survival.Some other people think that one of the factor in life which is undoubtedly greater importance than money,which is wealth,as wealth is a blessing that money can't buy.again most people would agree that personal happiness easily outweighs money in importance.even if an individual is extremely rich,this doesn't necessarily leads to happiness.On the whole,although there are those who would rank money as the single most important thing in life,the vast majority would disagree.So,I think that money is not the most important thing in life.

In my views about money is different. Because I treat money is a secondary not the most important part in our life. We live without money, we can live not being wealthy...Not only breath for people to live? In my opinion; Xiao-ping words is a kind of fool. Because it show for him to love money than being a man...?

I also came to the conclusion that money is the most important thing in life. Why? I'm an unemplyed now, I have a child learning in an university far from home, my husband and I are not doing so well with our health. That's why money are important: to attend higher education, to be able to pay for a doctor, to make payments for everyday living and provision, etc. That money is not the only important thing in life is another story. Money is the element that gives security, the same way a permanent job does.

What you have said is indeed evident in the lives of many - the unhappy poor man struggling to meet ends. However, if the poor man can be more optimistic, he will see light beyond. How about a renounced person? Isn't he as poor, but does he lament? No, because he sees beyond his poverty. He has passion, he has compassion, he has faith. In conclusion, money is important but it is not the most important thing in our life.

Hello there. I strongly agree that money is ONE of the most important thing in life because without it, we cannot live. We need money to buy foods, clothes, and shelter. We need money to buy everything we need and want. But, I think it should not be compared with love and other intangible things because those are different things. We also need love, care and support from our loved ones.

Hi babu, I totally agree that the money in very important in our nowadays life, leave the money, you will be difficult do complete anything. So, everybody working hard to abtain more money from the salary or else. But in my oppion, there are many things are much more important than money, such as the friendship, the love, the family, I never do stuff hurt my family or friends for the money. Thanks. Jack

The most important thing in our life is our life it self. The reason why we are eager to earn money because we want to survive for our daily living. It is not the money which is important. But the life that we have..

Hello,I agree with you,Money is very important in these days.Noone can live without money.Without money its like one is living with a disease.There is nothing you can buy with money literally.But we should also remember that we should have someone to be by our side,to be with us when there is money with us otherwise we may end up with a house full of money alone,which isn't pretty at all.

I personally dont agree, not saying that money isnt needed (personally we could do with some more) however I think there are a few other things more important. Health would have to be right up there. You could have all the money in the world and yet if you had really bad health how would you enjoy it? Being poor isnt much fun as alot of people do know but I still think I would put health, happiness and love above money.

Hi. I partly agree with you. Money has become the most powerful and most influential thing here on Earth. Without money, you could not afford even the basic necessities for yourself and your family. With money, however, you could buy anything but NOT happiness and peace of mind.

Preserving life itself would be the most important thing in our life for me. Its not money but how to stay alive and how to cope-up with our daily struggle to stay alive would be the most precious thing a person could do. I would be very happy if I can live up to my old age. That is a constant struggle I had to face everyday.

Well, I agree what you said here, although you may make it sound so sarcastic. Money indeed is so important to majority of us here, especially in this modern world. Without it, you are nothing. With it, you are powerful, although you may not get the happiness that you were always looking for. People work hard enough just to earn a mere wage. For me, I want to be rich definitely.

I believe money is very important in our lives, but not THE most important thing. Without money, you wouldn't be able to afford food, clothing, shelter. Basic needs in today's society. But the common question is: If you were rich, and had money to buy everything you ever desired, but had no one to share it with, would you be happy? I just want to have enough money to be content with. To be able to afford a nice Christmas for my children without spoiling them. To be able to buy their needs and a few of their wants without struggling. To be able to put food on the table every night without worry. I see no need for the fastest car or an enormous house. But money is important to survive. At least, in today's world.

I admitt money is important need.Not only todays life from ancient time money is first requirment of life.But important is that what the way we choose to earn money.. with hard work or through easy way. according to me I am in favour of earn money with hardwork instead of doing crime.Today so many people are going on wrong track for the sake of earn easy money with in short time . NO doubt MOney is Important, we are not able to live a day with out money as we are depend lots on it ( purchase of so many daily use importnat things), but its not good idea for money done wrong with some one or cheat some one.money is just need of life dont consider it as life. Important is be good and do good Take care
