How big a role does money play in your life? Is monye everything in your life or are relations and emotions more important. In this materialistic world , I don't think there is anyone who is not materialistic , be it the People who earn money in the name of God , or be it the priests and other people who work in holy institutions. In philosophy , materialism is that form of physicalism that hold that the only thing that can truly be said to exit is matter, that fundamentally all things are composed of material and all the phenomena are result of material interactions. Comments guys , and thanks in advance for your answers

I think it's not our fault that we are materialistic cause in this world u have to b materialistic, Mostly in this world u will find people running only for money and they can do enything for money cause we know that we got to survive in this world and cause of that we need to earn that's why we humans are so busy earning that we have forgotten abt things such as emotions, relations.....

yes , but that does not mean that the only thing you are after is money. There should be a place in your life for everything and not only money.

I think your relations and emotions (friends, family, happiness) is more important and I mean especially your relationship with God. In the end that is what will really matter. I thank God for everything that I have for He is the one who has given it to me.

Not many have the same views to life as you do lucy. For most people I know , money is the only thing they like and they are not bothered about family , emotions and things like that. Money comes and goes , but relations , once broken are hard to mend.
