Money is not worth having if you don't know how to make right use of it.
Money is not worthy of being had if you don't know how to make right use of it.
Money is not worthy to be had if you don't know how to make right use of it.
Do all of the above sound right and mean about the same to you? Thanks.
Things are mostly "worth..." or "not worth...".
However, "worthy' is sometimes used for things:
A 'worthy cause' is a cause worth supporting.
A 'worthy proposal' is (worth considering)(worthy of consideration).
But in your sentences, we wouldn't say 'Money is not worthy...'.
