Tool Of Life That Gives Us Real Self Worth

Tuesday, December 22, 2009 | comments

For years now we have been living for money. We work so hard to earn it, and when it is not enough we work overtime or take a second job, and expend anxious hours and sleepless nights to manage it and accumulate it. We sacrifice everything – family, community, peace of mind – to make money. And after all this we cannot explain where all these money is. Reason being, we never had it in the first place – it had us. Money is a means, not an end. It is supposed to be a tool for life—not the other way around.

The money we make never truly belongs to us. It either disappears into thin air, or it saps our strength and steals our lives. But every hour spent with our children, every dollar we give to charity, every positive endeavor we support—these can never be taken from us. They are ours forever. In other words, what we give is more beneficial than what we gain.

Money is not a measure of self worth. If you are poor and a miracle happens and you wake up rich tomorrow, your self worth will not increase, and you will not be a better person because you have got more money now. And if you lose half of your fortune because some certain stocks you invested in had hiccups, your self worth does not decrease by half.

Allow me to help you here; the true meaning of financial security is not money. The sense of security is derived not from bank accounts and stock portfolios, but from the confidence that the same God who created us and placed us upon this earth also provides our means of sustenance. God created us to be partners in the business of life, so if we do our part, God will do His.
