Do you think this an accurate statement," Money is not everything, it is the only thing?" What are you thoughts?

I don't necessarily believe it's the root of ALL evil but it certainly brings out the evil in some

Money serves a purpose, but it's not everything to me. I use it for its intended purpose. However, the most important things in life are things that money cannot buy.

Its not money but the LOVE of it that is the root. I kinda agree cause when you trace most if not all evil back to its root, it boils down to greed (money).

Tell it sista. what it boils down to is that no matter if money exists or not, God always provides. No material thing should not be allowed to have that control on anyone.

Yes and No. Money maybe the root of all evil,but I believe it is to those born with it, who have no ideal how to cherish what it can do for you. I believe that money for some one who can appreciate what it does for stability,and enriching your life and your Family's lives, could never be as frivolous as the Hiltons,Kennedys,and Romneys of the world. I couldn't fathom wasting money on diamond chokers for dogs,buying a one million dollar home,let alone a four and a half million dollar four bedroom home,for two people. People that earn it, take care of it. Those born to it are deathly afraid of losing it and will slit a loved one's throat to have a bigger piece for themselves. Your statement in the OP is what these spoiled brats conjure up,to me.

You are right Ma. But some of us survive on very little,LOL. I always say I am a very creative book keeper. 12 kids,I had to be. Problem, the football team of Sons haven't paid dividends as of yet,Ha!

All Momma you are special. I agree,my family is the source of my extreme joy and devotion after GOD, and he in his infinite wisdom blessed me with them. I just need more to ease their stress,the oldest is 27 going on 28 on Saturday, and the other 11,7 are 20 somethings and the rest, 18,15 & 14 I'd Love to ease the adult responsibilities and set the grands(5) up with college monies. That's all,I believe what it's intended for. But you are a sweet one.
