Many people live for money. Many people do not want money. A few are rich. Many are poor. Some people stand between two extreems. Many people commit suicide because of money. People are killed by money. Is money important in our life? Is money a bad thing? Can you live without money? Do you want to become rich?

Money isn't important. It's the need of money that gets us in trouble. For most of us there is a huge need for money just to survive, but for some the "need" becomes "greed". Once greed gets in the way, then people will do anything to get it. It's an unfortunate need for that green paper.

I agree with you. We need money to survive. Greed is not a product of money. Good people use money for good things. Bad people use it for bad thing. Can you manage your life without the green paper?

Do you need money for basic survival? Yes. But what's more important is who you are and realize everyday is a rich bessing. When we leave this earth, we can't take it with us. The poorest on earth is the richest in Heaven. "Be generous and you will be prosprerous. Help others and you will be helped". Proverbs 11:25

i felt very funny about money. well the thing is like this, i read somewhere that for a man, MONEY and WOMAN is like necessary evils. you need them for survival but you should also know how much you can use them. in so far as the money is concerned everybody knows that nothing is free here in this world, you earn, you spend , and you save something for the future also. that is what the prudent way is.

Money and Woman are not evils. But they are necessary. We can not avoid the both. They are not everything in our life. But,they are important.

wish i could say no. but that would be hypocrisy. money is still money. of course it is not as important as those things that really make us happy like our family. but in this world, money can make us happy in a lot of ways. money of course is important. without it, survival would be difficult. especially nowadays that nothing comes for free. but it's not so much imprtant to me that would make me want to kill myself. it's important in a way because it is used to exchange for good like the food we eat. of course i would wanna get rich. another hypocrisy if i said no to that question. yes! yes! yes!

Yes,money is important specially these days.But money is not all that we need,we need happiness,peace of mind,contentment in life,a healthy body and a healthy mind.Money can not give you all that i mentioned,because money is used by the greedy to control our lives.We should never let them control our lives,luxuries in life are offered which are not a necessity in our daily lives.We are accustomed by them to be money spenders,we should not let them,spend only for what you need,or what you can buy in your standard of living,don't reach for something that is unreachable.Control the money,and you control your expenses.

Money... the evil of all evils... If I had enough money to pay bills... me and my kids would be gone... But... sadly... we have no other way to get by but to be here... for now...someday... hopefully sooner than later ... we will be able to have enough to get by on our own! I don't want to be rich... I would live poor... if just I had enough to get by.

You hate money. But,you need money. You do not have enough money. That is your problem. Be positive! You will get enough money. God can do everything. He will help you and your kids. I pray for you and your kids.

I'll be honest, I want to be rich, I want to have a lot of money, but still, I hate money. I think it is the most stupid thing ever invented! I would prefer that people would trade cattle and gold and silver, because atleast they mean something, money is just paper

The most important is: (based in priority) 1. Rich in Faith. 2. Rich in Knowledge. 3. Rich in money. First you must rich in faith (iman) because if you dont have faith (iman) you will lose control, you will dont have any rule, dont have any way of life and could be a cruel, evil people. and then you rich in Knowledge, if you have knowlegde you will know everything, then you will be easy in getting money. Then rich in money, because if you dont have money, you can be a beggar even steal money. but if you have faith you will not steal or rob, you will know that it's wrong, God know it. it's a sin. that's why Faith is the most important.

Money isnt too important to me. Obvisouly everyone needs money to live but i dont think i would ever let moeny drive me. Things like friends and family are much more important to me than money.

i won't be a hypocrite and say that money is not important... money is important to me to a certain extent... but there are many more other things that are much more important than money... the Bible says that the love for money is the root of all evils... i whole-heartedly agree with this... so many crimes and wars are happening because of money... relationships are broken because of money... and so on... i can't live without money... but i wouldn't want to be rich... for me, health and happiness are much more important than having lots of money but can't enjoy it... what for??? i just ask God everyday to give me sufficient money for me to survive and have a little bit extra for my entertainment... that's all i want... as long as all my basic needs are met, i can pay all my bills, no debts, and i can have a little bit of entertainment... i am grateful and happy...

if you worship and adore money then moeny is not good but if it is just a fruit of your labor then it is good.money can be earned if you work for it...we cant get money for free we have to work for it and i dont believe that if you dont have money you are poor...people in my native land have big spots of land,lots of horses,and most domisticated animals and they have no money in hand yet they are not poor they dont need money to live...if they want to eat there is a lot of vegetables in the yard,if they wanted meat there is pigs and chicken to cook,if they want milk there are cows there to get milk...if you live a simple life you will not be poor...the problem with people now a adays are their being lazy to work a look for ways to earn a living...you can see ppor peopele every where and they dont do anything to make their lives more comfortable...you can see them most of the time sleeping and yet they say they have no money they are poor they have no work and a lot of alibi's...but if they would only try their best to look for ways to earn they wont be poor anymore but i guess some peopel are like that already....lazy...

All people need money to their life, it's important but not the most important one for people, you can buy anything but something you can't buy with money, like true love, happiness and how peace our hearth, you can not buy it with your money.

Money makes the world go around and without it you have nothing and with it you have as much of the world that money can buy.

I absolutely want to become rich and I absolutely love money. The more the merrier. At the same time, it's not really just about money itself. Money works as a quantitative unit to help us keep score on how we are progressing with our growth and our personal mission (goals).

Money is very important to have. Without it, you can't do anything. And if you think I'm lying, try being broke.

I always used to say money isnt everything, but that was because I never had any money! I have never had a lot of money, and I have always made do, as the years go on we are gaining more financially and are slowly getting to the stage where one day we might be able to say we are comfortable and that will be enough for me, I dont want to be rich, I would hate it, I just want to be comfortable. Everything seems to revolve around money, it can cause such heartache and mither and stress.
