Is It Wise Being Money Minded…

If there is one thing of concerns everyone today, is money, comforts and other riches of life. From an ordinary wage earner, an employee dependent on the pay cheque, or entrepreneur or corrupt politicians and system every one aims on how to secure more money and lead life comfortably.

Money in itself is not bad, but, it is our attitude towards money that is making us corrupt and forces us to forget our morals.  If we go back to the history of money, it was invented to make the life of a human easy. But on the contrary, it has made our life difficult to live. The main reason behind this is the ever increasing prices and corrupt system that is responsible for the greed for money.

If any country needs to prosper, there should be a flow of money, like water when flows, it quenches the thirst, gives rise to crops, increases life. But when it gets stagnated it becomes polluted and useless.  So, individuals who wish to prosper and want to see the nation and world prosper should, earn only that much that is required for a decent living. If one’s income levels is very high than required, it needs to be donated or distributed among the needy.

In India, in our scriptures it is written as to how to spend the money. It is said earning money is not wrong, especially, he is a head of the family; it is his responsibility to earn money and to look after the needs of the family members. The income earned as savings should be kept aside for future needs such as, education, marriage, health concerns, retirement etc., some portion for any unforeseen emergencies, and some portion for the society, for charitable cause. And some money also needs to be kept for spiritual concerns.

This is how we need to organize the budget, the wages or income that we earn honestly and morally. Money earned in this way and spent in the above mentioned way, always leads to the betterment of the individual and the society at large. Always show gratitude when you spend money; feel happy that by God’s grace you are able to pay bills and buy things. When you receive money in any form feel happy that by his grace you have earned or received it.

Value money when you receive your wage or income or a gift. Feel happy and be grateful to God that he has blessed you. If you continue to exhibit this attitude towards money at all the times and in all circumstances, you will see that circumstances will change for betterment and you will prosper in finances.
