You can’t live without money, but you can’t just live for money.
Didn’t someone say, “Money is the root of all evil.”
Of course, it’s not money itself that is bad, but the greed for it, and the use and hoarding of it for selfish purposes.
On this topic, my daughter sent me this interesting story:
One business tycoon in China passed away.
His widow, was left with $1.9 billion in the bank, and married his chauffeur.
His chauffeur said: “All the while, I thought I was working for my boss… it is only now, that I realize that my boss was all the time, working for me!”
We can have all the money in the world, but it’s never really ours.
It all belongs to G-d, as does our entire life.
He decides what we have or don’t have (any longer).
We need to realize that life is ephemeral and all material things are given to us just for the time being.
We should be generous with whatever bounty that G-d has given to us, because in the end that is all that is truly lasting.
