What Will Money Bring Us, Fortune or Misfortune?
A story goes that once an apartment building caught fire. Among the survivors was a boy of five, who crawled out of the building by himself with a wet towel covering his nose. But his father, who taught the boy the way, got killed, for he went back again for his money.
Simple as the story is, it conveys a profound message: money can be more deadly than fire.
Actually, there is no denying the fact that it has been a controversial topic “what will money bring us, fortune or misfortune?” Quite a few people would choose the former instantly, for they believe that money can buy them also everything. There are, of course, people who hate money and believe it is the source of misfortune.
As far as I am concerned, I think that money itself cannot bring us fortune or misfortune, but our attitudes towards it can. Be the master of money and you will drive it to work for you, to buy you necessities and to enjoy your life. However, if you take yourself a slave of money, you will surely fall into the pit of misfortune one day. You will be tempted by money and lose your compass of life. You will even lose your life, as the father in the story did. So, friends, wake up and be the lord of money!
