￼ A lot of people work hard because they want to earn money, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In my own humble opinion, I think earning money is one of the main reasons people strive to work hard , it’s either they get it through their paychecks (employment) or from profit (business).
I don’t think anyone would deny it if asked on it.. simply because, money is what WE use to buy things ,our NEEDS and WANTS. It is our medium for exchange. Other reasons for working that I can think of is may be for self fulfillment or because it is it their passion on life.
My point here is .. that there’s nothing to be ashamed about working because you want to earn cash, if money is your main reason for working, It’s not a bad thing. Money is not evil, although it can make bad people do more evil stuffs, It can also help good people bring the most help they can give to others who are less fortunate. Believe me, it is not something you don’t want to have.
Some say that the bible states that “money is the root of all evil”. I don’t know about that, it is clearly written that for loving money is the root of all evil, it’s wanting is so much that one is even willing to do evil things for the sake of having it.
1 Timothy 6:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
In conclusion, earning money is not a bad thing when you’re earning it from the right way. Either if one is in employment or in business if you earn it right.. it’s all good.
