Be a Blessing

Who doesn’t want to be rich?

Most of us, if not all, want to be rich in one way or another. That’s why we all work hard to achieve our goals in life– whether it’s for our own careers, families, or for others. It feels good to have goals and eventually achieve them in the end. Though money can never buy true happiness, it is a very important tool in achieving our goals.

Admittedly, money makes our lives comfortable. It can provide food in our respective tables, can help us avail the best quality education for our children, can let us travel places that we always wanted to visit, can cure our illnesses, buy quality medicines, provide the best health care for us and even can help us improve our physical looks. But most of all, money can be a powerful tool for us to help others. It can bring people– families and communities– together.

Although money may bring the out the best in us, it can bring out the worst in us too. It’s a double-edged sword, as it can also be a tool to destroy others and do evil things. As they say “love of money is the root of all evil.” That’s why it is important to use our money wisely. Use it for the best, not for the worst. We should not confine our wealth to ourselves and our families, but use it to make others happy– by helping them fulfill their dreams and restore hope to the hopeless. At the end of the day, the wealth that we have came from God, and we are just mere stewards of His possessions. Let’s pay it forward and be a blessing to one another.
