Begging vs. Hard work to make money

Working hard for your money makes one appreciate what they make and those who work hard feel good about themselves. There are many ways to make money where you do have to put in time, energy and hard work. It can be owning your own business, working online or working for someone else. People who beg can become violent and very aggressive for getting free money they believe they are owed. I have heard people brag about getting money every month from social security, having their own place and not using the money that tax payers have to pay into. It is hard to know who really needs money in terms of those who beg vs those who do and DO NOT NEED TO BEG! When I was homeless all I wanted was to get back on my feet by working hard for every cent I made and continue to make. I see so many people begging that make it impossible for those who really need help. Then again, I see people beg who are fully capable of work but feel they are owed a free ride. Life is really not meant to be a free ride at all! At the same time, I know there is not many jobs. When that is the case, look inside you and find your strengths so you can do what your good at to get back on your feet. If you want to open your own business and you live in another country, I have an address for a government grant that does approve grants for people that do not live in the states as well as for those who do.

You are absolutely right desertrose,In third world countries there are lots of beggers,most of them are unreal,i mean they are not true beggers,there are groups of people who are using injured people to beg and earn them money,It has become a sort of business,people are actually so much confused,who to give money,A big question mark,signals and worship places are their main locations which they target,Their numbers increase at the time of holy months and holy days,All this stuff is done by proper planning and big fishes are involved in it for sure. What do you think?

I think that one should really work especially if one is physically fit. There are many decent jobs one can have. Thanks for this. Good day!

I think that we come to appreciate things more when we work hard to earn the the money for them, when we beg and are given these things something is lost in the appreciation of it all.

You said it right. You've got a wonderful thing going and boy, did it hit the nail in the head. I don't approve of begging as a means of making money when one is strong enough to do something. As you said, there are a lot of ways to make money, rather than begging. There are many international businesses where the capital is very minimal but the future looks great financially. One can make lots of money working hard and smart - doing an international business online or offline. I admire you for having your own business.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Yes i completely support your thoughts and i feel extremely bad when poor people think that through begging they can carry forward their family. They should realize the fact that God has given us two hands and two legs using which we can do anything and achieve anything we want. Why to lay hands in fronts of many rather than work hard and earn money with pride and self respect. i hope this mindset changes. What say?

Begging is a hard work too, don't you know that. It takes courage and bravery and strong will to ask something from someone. It takes pride take something that will give. Do you think begging is just begging? Whaaa it is difficult to beg it is hard work.
