for me it represents freedom ... it is freedom to live the way you want.
I agree that some people seem to have an unhealthy obssession with money, known as greed. People love it so much because it gives them greater control of their own lives and ultimately it gives people control of other people too. But money in itself should not be thought of in a negative way. If you have ever starved or lived on the street you would realise just how important money is. It's not such a dirty word then!
Even though the most valuable things in life cannot be obtained with money, most people are physical instead of spiritual.
"Now we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that have been kindly given us by God. These things we also speak, not with words taught by human wisdom, but with those taught by [the] spirit, as we combine spiritual [matters] with spiritual [words].
But a physical man does not receive the things of the spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot get to know [them], because they are examined spiritually. However, the spiritual man examines indeed all things, but he himself is not examined by any man." [1 Cor 2:12-15] New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
Money ? What the heck is that? Yep cannot live without it but it does get you around the city.
It get's us so much nice pretty things
I would love to have some money to love ;-)
