februaryOur living conditions are gradually improving and thus our need of money for daily life is on the increase. It is obvious that money is very helpful to us, but in addition to its benefits, there are many downsides that it has brought into life.
Firstly, money brings about a lot of advantages as seen from the fact. We use it to equip our houses with furniture, to buy food, clothes and all other things we need to live comfortably. Money is an essential precondition for every student to go to school and for every patient to see a doctor. Moreover, we can use it for charity to help compensate somewhat our unfortunate feeling / sense of duty by making material / financial contributions. Without money, our living conditions would be penurious / poor, and very hard to meet the minimum requirements / basic needs in life, which is simply eating or drinking.
Apart from those advantages, money has brought us numerous downsides. First of all, it makes us grasping. Money is undoubtedly very valuable in life, the more money we earn, the more materials we have. Therefore, people always try their best to earn as much money as possible due to their desire to have a better life. Some, however, do not. They want more money simply because of their rivalries. They wish to be as wealthy as millionaires or billionaires without working for it. This undeliberate
ly/ unreasonable attitude to life is contrary to morality. Secondly, money rules over evil-doing behaviours / evil deeds. Earning money legitimately is a difficult task, but some people want it to be an easy one by committing conscienceless / irresponsible acts which are likely to be robbing or murdering. They are not alive to the fact that such behaviours can end them up in prison. / The road of their lives is certainly not to become criminal and end up in prison.
In other words, whether money does us good or harm
itdepends greatly on our perception of it. With money in our hands, we should let it be our servants, not our masters in order to build a better and better world where no crimes exist. / We should consider the money in our hands to be our servant, not our master in order to build an increasingly better world without crimes.
