Money Money Money ( Part 1)

Money Isn't Everything for your life.Money is a great tool and one

that we all need to provide a good life for our families. But money is

 not the be all and end of life.When you spend at least eight hours a

day working, striving to earn a decent income to support your

 family, provide for your needs, and have something left over to

fulfill a few desires, it's easy to get caught up in the trap believing

 that money is what it's all about.I have some reasons to tell for you

 Why Money Isn't Everything.

Money may provide things that can make you happy for awhile,

 but real, lasting happiness can't be bought. It's something that

 comes from contentment within.  Knowledge and confidence in

 who we are and a purpose in life is true happiness. Money can't

 buy that.And while some equate joy with happiness, they

 are really two different things. Happiness is the bouncy feeling

that comes along when something pleasant happens in our lives.

 Happiness can be as simple as an ice cream cone or a good

 book. Joy, on the other hand, is a deep-seated contentment that

 nothing can take away. And money certainly can't bring joy into

 our lives. Money is superficial. Joy goes deep.  Next reason,it's a

well known truism that money can buy you a bed, but it can't help

 you sleep. While money can provide things you need and want, it

 can't alter your state of mind enough that you have lasting peace.

 That's something that comes from within and money will never 

provide it.And Sure, money can pay for doctor's visits and

 prescriptions, but even the wealthiest folks in the world know that

 money can't buy you health. And money can't replace or remove

 poor health or disease. Choose nutritious food and go out for a

 daily walk for exercise. Those two things don't cost a lot and go

 a long way to “buying” you health.

Next,Love is truly the greatest gift of life; the love of

Regardless of what some may think, money - or acquiring it - isn't

 the purpose of life. We are taught early on that the love of money is

the root of all evil. It's important to read that very carefully; the LOVE

 of money is the root of all evil, not money. Use money as a tool with

 which to build a life. Making money your purpose for living is

 dangerous. Find a purpose in your life that fulfills you and gives your

 life meaning.And You hear people talk about their faith in many

different ways, and we do have faith in different things, but have you

 ever heard anyone claim to have faith in money? Probably not. While

 money may give us a sense of security, it can also fail us, and often

 does. Money let's us down. Faith in something greater than ourselves,

 however, won't. a child, a parent, a spouse, a sibling, or a friend.

 Love is what drives the world, and that drive should never be the

 love of money, but rather love for people. That's what will bring

 real, lasting joy. Isn't that what we're all seeking? Money can't

 buy love. Simply said and very true, indeed.And Life is a process

 of personal growth and learning, and while money may provide

the opportunity for that growth, it will never be able to provide

 the growth itself. Learning and growing come from a change 

within us not from the cash in our bank accounts, or the limit on

 our credit cards. Constantly learning new things opens our life

 up to new possibilities, new horizons. Money cannot open up

 our mind.

Last,While money can help your family to have the things they

need and want, money can't give you a family, grow your family,

 make your family healthy, or even give your family lasting

 happiness. Family togetherness and love depends on time

 spent, not money spent.Finally, while you can buy material

 things, pay for health care, even "buy" some people, there are

 things money can't buy. Money can't buy family, health, happiness,

 faith, peace, purpose, joy, personal growth, or love. Look at the

 hundreds of lottery stories; people who's dream has come true,

they are instant millionaires. Look at what happens to 99.9% of

 these people and I dare you to tell me that money is the answer

 to all your problems.. Next time you get caught in the money trap,

 take a few minutes to remember what in life is REALLY important.

 Your loved ones will be glad you did, and so will you.

Money Money Money Isn't Everything.
