Why is money so important? People seem to put a higher value on money than they do reationships, time, and even faith. I know we need money to survive, and live our lives, but it seems like some contest to see who can make the most. Does money really buy happiness?

I disagree with you, not everything needs money. Money does not buy faith.

Money can buy lots of things and to answer your question directly, yes it can but only for a short period of time. The reason is most persons buy stuff that they can enjoy and when they have too much of it, they tend to give some away. Unfortunately, the whole World has their priorities wrong and I would like to suggest that Faith be number 1, then Love be number 2 and Hope be number 3. Money is at the bottom of the list at least for me. Thank you for this wonderful topic and I do hope you get lots of responses.

I believe that money can help, but cannot truly buy happiness. I feel a lot of pressure to have money right now that i disagree with. I do know that money helps, but it is not everything. I do agree with you faith should be a #1 priority.

No it does'nt. I think money actually ruins lifes. If you want to motivate someone just offer them some money. its sickening seeing some of the things people do for money. They betray, hurt all kinds of things for some dough and alot of people don't even use there money wisely. It's just sad seeing how people refuse to prioritize the good things in life. Good luck to those that do and God Bless.

We live in a material world these days. A lot of values have become perverted, and it seems that we can't survive anymore without money--and that the basis of happiness is having a lot of it. Yeah sure, you can buy everything that you've dreamed of, but I guess you have missed out on the essentials of living. We also have to feed our emotional and spiritual needs, not only our stomachs. This is always to be realized when it's too late. I have experienced having lots of money. I thought that I would be very happy. Yeah, I have many friends but they're usually the user-friendly type. Money is consumable (and my moneyed days were over), and my so-called friends have also disappeared. I was so depressed because I have realized that I had forgotten my family and my true friends who truly loved me. So, I know from experience that money can't buy happiness. Now I'm trying to make up for my faults. Good thing I realized it earlier.
