For The Love Of Money


Some people love money more than others. And others it seems money loves them more than the rest of us. Is there a balance?

I have searched for the answer at the height of success to the bottom of society and back again. What I have found is that there is no balance. Either you care about money or you don’t. If you are good with handling money then it will show and money will love you back for it. If not then not having money shouldn’t be a problem. The real problem is the people who can’t tell whether they care about money or not. They say money doesn’t matter and stress over a late bill. If it really doesn’t matter then a late bill doesn’t matter.

Okay, so I know what you are thinking. How can I deny that some people don’t see money as important but still deal with it regularly and do it well. Well… If they are doing well with money then obviously they care about it and it holds a special spot in their hearts somewhere. If you were to take all of their money away they would be hurt by it. It’s a leverage of life used to force us to adhere to societal standards. Go to work, pay bills, feed kids, then repeat.

I just don’t see loving money as a bad thing anymore. We need money as an all equalizing force for the goods we trade daily. In the bible it says “the love of money is the root of evil” not money itself. Money is just a tool amoral in it’s application. The intent is determined by the user. So use it wisely and love it while you do.
