When we talk about money, there is a common saying that “money is the root of all evils.”
You may hear people around you say something like this, “I don’t have money. It’s ok. Money spoils relationship. Money creates evil. The rich people are greedy. I don’t want to be like them.” Sadly to say, here is another way to interpret it, “I don’t have money. It’s bad. I still don’t want to work hard for it.” This belief has long become the excuse for many people to stay poor.
How can money be evil? It’s just papers or in the modern world of internet banking, it’s just a number. It’s just a tool for transaction. The good or bad entirely depends on the user. You have the choice either to do good with money or do evil with money. Therefore, never mistaken money as the root of all evils. Greediness, is the root of all evils.
Greedy people choose to do evil with money.
With greed, they are not contented, they upgraded everything in their life unnecessarily. Bigger car, bigger house and bigger desire with anything they want. As a result, they spend the money excessively and end up with bigger debts.
Greed sometime leads people to commit in unlawful acts. Just like one classic tale. 3 friends found a bag of gold. They stranded in the forest. “A” went to look for food while “B” and “C” stayed behind to guard the gold. With greed, the “A” poisoned the food in order to take all the gold. “B” and “C” planned to kill “A” in order to share the gold only between them. Guess what? In the end, “A” was killed, “B” and “C” were poisoned to death. From the story, the greed to possess more money may lead one to have sinful thought, to commit illegal act, as well as to break a relationship.
With greed, some even gamble, in the hope to get more money by luck. Buying lottery tickets, betting in casino, sport betting, as well as financial market speculation, are the common places where some people able to gain some money by luck. However, there are a big majority lost their money, even worst they get into financial trouble.
