Do you think money is important? Do you think it is the root of all evil? Do you tell your children or yourself we can't afford that? Did you know your feelings and thoughts on money will determine if you will have money and be able to keep it?

money is important for food and shelter also it is fun to buy things that you want my psych professor said that people who made just enough to get by compared to people who won the lottery, were just as happy as the lotto winners for me, just making a little more than what i absolutely need is already pretty good

money of itself is not the root of evil it is a nececity the bible tells us ''the Love"" of money is the root of evil not money itself if one loves money so much it becomes an obsession then it is a sin ,

you can love anything you want as long as you don't put that love higher then the love you have for the Lord. The Lord comes first in all things, ALL things and people

I feel like I need money to purchase things that I want and need, but if I start to love it more than God then that's what makes it evil. Money itself is not evil worshipping it is evil. I am thinking that I am going to have a lot of money someday. I don't know how it's going to happen or when it's going to happen,but I feel like it's going to happen because I have faith that somehow it's going to happen.

Yes, money is important but it's not the solution to all problems. I sometimes tell my children we can't afford things and they are very conscientious about that and don't beg me to buy it for them. Even if I have the money I do this so they don't get used to that I will buy all things for them whenever they want something. I do want more money in my life but I think if I am rich I will still be not happy because what matters is how happy you are with your life in general, being content with what you have.

if you wish to have more money then you have to start thinking and feeling differently about money. happiness is a state of mind. money doesn't make you happy, you make you happy. being content means what i have is enough, being grateful for what you have means i want more things to be grateful for. you have to understand the power of words and then the feelings behind them

I believe that money is important to get what you need in this world; Yes, I also think it is the root of all evil; I feel that there is a serious imbalance of it in this world, and it has been used to keep some from acquiring what others have a lot of. I feel if you are a person of limited means, you should always put some money aside for a time when you will need it and go from there. It is essential to save money for the times when you feel you will need it;

i don't think that money it has been use to keep people down. it is just some people who have money do that. people are evil, money is not evil. money is a thing, what some people do to ge that thing is evil.

I think that money is the root of all evil. Me and my partner tend to fuss when there is not enough money. I hate money. I know we just have to deal with it though. When I get money I tend to try to spend it all at one time, I wish that I was not like that because having 2 kids, I need to be able to save up my money. The whole money discussion just makes me mad, really. And where I live, oh my gosh, it is so rediculouslly high to live anywhere. 1 bedroom apartments are going for like 900 a month. See I figure the people who make the money rules have tons of it, so it does not matter to them if everything is so high in cost. they do not think about the people out there that work full time and even overtime and bust their tails, just to make enough money for ends to meet. Sorry I guess I am rambling now. Mabye I should not have commented.....lol

Yes i think money is important.I use to tell my kids no i can't afford it, but thease days im trying something new.I live in an apartment right now and my daughter was over her friend house and she seen a house , sent a picture of a house that she want us to live in to my cell phone,mind you she is only 12,so instead of me saying i can't afford that house right now,i replied to her text message some day,i was in tears.She really wants us to have a home where we can have our privacy.I think what some people does with money makes it evil because i really need money to care for my children and pay my bills.

you should take that picture and print it. put it up and just focus on that house. feel the feelings of having that house. your mind will open up to new and wonderful ideas. you have no idea the power of mind is. when you focus on things that become bigger. you can have a house like that, you just have to focus your mind on it. then take action

i say,money is a very dangerous thing. it can separate dear ones far away. or may even make them enemies. 95% of the people would kill anybody in this world (even their mother) if they are offered some crores. i bet on this. according to me, money should never be given importance. i agree money is the most essential thing for a survival. but at the same time money shouldnt rule us. we should only rule it. whenever a person becomes money minded, then money starts ruling him. which would lead to greediness. and finally there would be no peace in life. so my opinion is, give money less importance. dont respect a person by looking at his bank balance, respect him for the good characters he has in him. in this present world, money is definitely being the root of most evil things happening in this world. but, if we have control over it then we can manage and live a peaceful life.
