‘The most successful story ever told’ 

While I hold no opposition to individuals making a living or working hard to earn their livelihood, it is essential that we don't develop an unhealthy love or worship for money

Someone once remarked that money holds the distinction of being the most captivating narrative in human history. The allure of wealth appeals to virtually everyone, with some unscrupulous individuals willing to resort to extreme measures, even violence, to acquire it. From a young age, children yearn to receive money, while adults strive to earn it through their efforts. Interestingly, even religious institutions seek monetary contributions for their programs, some suggesting that a certain percentage of earnings must be given to ensure a place in heaven.

For atheists, who may not believe in a higher power, money seems to take on a quasi-divine significance. What is it about this seemingly ordinary paper that gives it such immense power? The answer lies in our emotional attachment to it.

While I hold no opposition to individuals making a living or working hard to earn their livelihood, it is essential that we don’t develop an unhealthy love or worship for money. Instead, we should maintain a sense of perspective, recognizing that only genuine devotion should be reserved for a higher purpose, a higher power.

In conclusion, let us remember that money is merely a means to an end and not an end in itself. Its role in our lives should be kept in check, avoiding any form of excessive attachment. Instead, we should direct our reverence and service toward more meaningful values and ideals, acknowledging that only true spirituality should be revered and adored.
