The Money Factor
An often ‘greatly’ misunderstood fact rings:
“Why many of the academically educated people don’t make the most money? Also, plenty end up working for someone else (fulfilling their dreams instead), who is not as educated as them, right?”
The statement above also is ‘largely celebrated’ by the ‘lack of education’ masses as a ‘sign of success’.
“It’s simple really; we didn’t study to make money. We studied to learn knowledge and hopefully gain wisdom too. Also, our aim in life is not to ‘maximize profit’ by doing least amount of work whilst demanding maximum labour with least possible salaries toward others. Nope. Our goal is to serve others even at the cost of ourselves eventually because that’s the Way Love taught us”.
‘We didn’t study ‘how’ to make more money either’.
‘It’s not that we don’t know. We know, we accept it and we love them back to prove ourselves as blameless as possible before the Almighty’.
Remember, we don’t want to ‘exploit others’ simply because He taught us to ‘treat others the “same” way we would want to be treated’ (especially, ‘by imagining’ if the ‘roles’ are ‘reversed’):
“In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:12)
Yes, the greatest mark of humility is ‘to serve others’ instead:
“But the greatest among you shall be your servant.” – Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 23:11)
See the Wisdom in ‘Good’?
‘Our Success’ is in another world in another age in His Kingdom which we await.
It’s also written that:
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:21)
