I like money. I think it is a useful tool and a medium of exchange. It represents value that I have been able to give someone and there is a certain amount of satisfaction that comes with that. I like to put it aside in savings for a future need. I like to cover all my expenses and have some left over. I like to give it to worthwhile organizations that are doing good in the world. I like to save money for retirement. I like to see my accounts grow.
But I do not love money. I will not sacrifice my integrity, health, or family for it. I will not compromise to get it. I will not value someone more because he has a lot of it nor will I undervalue someone who has less of it. I will not consider myself better than others because I have more of it then they do or because I manage my money better.
What is your view of money?
