What is money?
It is certain that everything always has its price in our life. And money is some kind of a reward for our work, which lets us enjoy the pleasures of life. Of course, you cannot buy real friends, true love or happiness in general, but money can give a sense of financial security or help to get rid of fear to lose their home or property. What's important, money can also be used to help other people who are unable to help themselves. That's, for example, people with serious health diseases or victims of wars, floods or famine. Is that bad? Of course, not.

However, many people believe that money can destroy people's lives. Money can easily become the master of any man, who puts wealth above everything else. Often making money becomes one of the most important things in the lives of such people. A love of money is the root of all evil. I believe that there is no harm in money; it is only a medium of exchange. But if a person loves it - this is what can lead to evil.
They work hard every day, and they do not have time for friends and relatives. It often leads to loneliness and shattered dreams and families. Greed often makes people to break the law and commit crimes to get rich. So greed is the first reason.
The second one is a spiritual damage. If a person cannot stop working and making money, he has no time for hobbies and self-education – it’s really bad. What kind of life is that? A person doesn’t have friends, family, love, interests. Only job. And money. Yes, spending money can be a real pleasure but it can’t be compared with the happiness of having a baby or a wedding.
The last one: money equals a social status. Society always judges people according how much money they have in their pockets. Sometimes people in different institutions mean nothing if they don’t have money. A scientist who had found a treatment for a disease and became rich is equal to a millionaire who was born rich. Is it fair? Rich life is cruel and has its own rules. It doesn’t matter how you’ve become rich. It only matters that you are rich! Also money attracts a lot of different people. And they are not always good. Besides the obvious advantages, rich life has plenty of disadvantages.
The lack of money can become a real source of evil. There are plenty of poor countries which don’t even have water to drink. If people had plenty of money would they solve this problem? Of course. Or if someone gets sick and needs an urgent surgery. What do you need? Money. It’s a solution for a lot of problems. Money can save lives. But lack of money can destroy it. So what is it? Evil or good?
People may remain in misery and fatigue pursuing wealth. They won’t have a chance to satisfy their greed completely. But despite all of that, I think that money is a good servant in the right hands.
