Money is really useful. I love money for the wide usage. Ultimately the purpose of money is to use it for our loved ones, and to show love to others by means of charity. What do you think?

The first thing we should do when we start to earn money is to give to our parents. The amount is small, but the gesture is love. I think that is the Asian value that we are brought up with, and we must continue to show love in this way.

@scheng1 Absolutely right.You reminded me of the day when I had got my first salary and had put it at the feet of my parents.I remember how elated they had got.It is by dint of their blessings that I am self dependent now.

@else34 I know the feeling. That is the time when we feel really like an adult, with the ability to earn money to support ourselves, and to partially support our parents. it is no difference now, and since we are earning more and more, and our parents are growing older and older, we just have to give them more support

Survive and shower love. Not show off.

Actually it is human tendency to show off. If the way of showing off is to buy expensive gifts for others, that is a good way of showing off. If we just buy for ourselves, and make our friends jealous, that is not good.

We must first have the money to make ourselves secured and happy, then we can extend to those whom belong to us, and finally to others.

I need money and I love the money that I earn with my time and effort. There is nothing wrong with loving the result of your hard work. This kind of love is different from all other kinds of love. This kind of love comprises of pride and satisfaction with our ability to make a living.

I think money has many uses, and yes, we can use it to help others, but we must also have it for our survival, too.

The others refer to our loved ones first of all, and definitely we have to help ourselves before we can help others. I think having money is a good thing, and we can use it to enjoy great food, and a nice house in a nice place.

Good. If we spend money on what we like most, then it is very meaningful. For example, many people asked me why I did not buy a car , and I answered that for me tour is more important than car. So I will spend money for international tours.

True, I agree with what you say. I do not have a car too, and I like to bring my mother to travel the world. I think the usage of money is to buy experience, so that we and our family can experience happiness together.

I agree. my loved ones is all I use my money on. it has been a while since I've spent anything on myself, aside the needed things like food, drinks or clothes.

That is really love. i think many people are too selfish, especially towards their parents. They spend so much money on themselves, and they neglect the needs of their parents. I think that is not right, since their parents sacrifice for so many years for them.

Money is not only used to pay bills and cost of living but it is used to help others. We should all chip in when we can. Giving is a blessing.

Giving is a great blessing, and when we give when we do not have much to give, that is really faith. I think the willingness to give is a great quality to have, but the practical help comes from the fact that we do have the resources to give.
