money is security and well being---many people look at money as dollars and cents or whatever your country use. money is whatever we as people put value to. diamonds, gold, silver, etc. we could a value to anything and make it money. if you have something everyone else wants--you have money.

What is money? I'm really beginning to understand what this is to me. I grew up not having much! I won't say poor because their are so many people in the world that had it so much worst. I remember saying that I didn't care if I was poor as long as I had Jesus as a young girl. I didn't realize that "money answereth everything." This is a bible verse that I've read. I know money doesn't make you happy but you sure do need money to make it in this earth. So what is money? Money to me is a resource! Money is Food! Money is My book being publishing! My songs being produced! Money is a way to a better life! Now money in the wrong hand for the wrong purpose can also cause a lot of heartaches! I pray that we will learn to be more responsible with the money that we do have and "be a blessing until all the families of the earth are blessed."

Hi friend, The experts long back declared that money is the root of all evils. If you have it in excess, you will be the cause of others' loss (either directly or indirectly).If you have less of it, you will be put into misery by the people who have it in excess (either directly or indirectly). Thus I say, Money is something that makes people restless.

I know i can't control what people do with their money but i just wished they would give more to the needy and leave off the other contributions that really requires no donation, in my opinion. For example like some organizations give money to support the gay rights. If you arte gay no offense but i just dont think they need any donations when there are a lot of starving people and people without health insurance that are in much greater need.

i don't blame the rich people. i have no right to tell them what to do with their money. some of them actually are helping through their donations. they have the right to do everything with their money for as long as they won't hurt anyone else in the process because it's their hard earned money. it's sad to know that most are starving these days. i still hope that people learn how to control their population. as i notice, those who are poor and can't even afford to raise a child are the ones contributing to population explosion. they jsut blame the government not thinking that they have their own faults, too.

The reason for the starvation in poor countries is the improper distribution and corruption of the rulers. They can become terrorist and afford to spend billions on weapons, but cannot utilize it for the benefit of the people. If billionairs are wasting money, that means it goes to someone elses hand. Even if they burn their money the value of the money in the rest of the people will increase. Luxury is a state of mind. A billionaire might own 500 acres of forest land. The only thing he has is the feeling it is his. The land cleans the environment for all of us. Seperate that into plots and distribute it to 5000 poor people, and whiting 2 years we willhave 20000 mlanourised little children in them waiting for state aid.

I have neva earned a single cent, since i m still a student and in ma country there is not much to do in the shape of part time work. I have always seen money as a commodity, a resource to be used when u need it. dont believe in wastin money, not even for entertainment, n for that reason i think that all those ppl who waste millions on their recreation n fun shud stop it. because money is powerful, it can change a nation's destiny. n i think the best thing u can do with it is give in charity, for there is no experience better for the heart than reaching down n lifting ppl up (I dont remember who said that so I wont quote).

money...without money you can face the world, you canot fight with the nature if you don't by clothes, you canot face the ealness becouse you don't have money to by medicines, you can't face life becouse you don't have money to eat...when are many there not good becouse people change and forget the way that they start.When have to little is not good becouse they are not enough to survive.So better is to have exactly to have a propriate life.If you have to much to help others and you have little to be helped by others.

no other species of life that exists on earth has got to do anything with money ,still they survive,without clothes,so clothes may be luxurious but not a necessity ,we have made it a necessity. so many animals survive in africa and amazon,without medicines and perhaps the most important fact about medicines is that they cant save u from dieing,no matter how much money u have u still die,the question has got much deeper intricacies than u have attempted to touch,by the way thanx for ur post.

actually in olden days,humans are doing different works nad survives accordingly,but time came wherea man should depend up on other to enjy his needs and desires,so thay started to help each other ,help in the sense exchange of work ,if one person does a work for someone ,he will get something else from the otherone.as time passed people became so cunning and did cheating ,so to avoid any malfunctioning,our society invented a thing called as money,a thing which we can get according to the value of our work,so this is a normalisation tool invented by man Thanks Suresh

I think time is money in this world. Who can utilize is times properly he can get more money. Because if we have to earn 500$ in a day then we have only 24hrs with us. If we have to earn 5000$ per day still we have 24Hrs per day. So who can utilize time the most, he will get the best.
