Why do we have to put a value on everything in life?
And why should that value be money?
It is actually devaluing...
p.s. - Thanks to Nancy for the conversation that led to this...
well not everything has a money value on it.. like what we are worth is not measured in money
So much in life is measured in money. In some families, not giving enough money at a wedding or not giving a very expensive gift on a holiday can cause all kinds of trouble so that the person is no longer valued. I think the cash value of things tends to pervade many aspects of life. It's troubling. And you're right, when it happens, it limits value, suggesting a limit and stopping growth.
Gitu - Think insurance... Life insurance... And a value was slapped even on Jesus' life... He was betrayed for 30 pieces of silver... Sanday - Exactly... It is disturbing, isn't it? *sigh*
Have you noticed that the value of what you don't have seems to be more than when you have it.
PS: Nice pic!
Maybe if we valued things according to what we give to them rather than what we receive from them it would help to change our perspectives.What a great question...They say that the best things in life are free, when in reality they're priceless...
I wish when we gave a gift people saw the heart behind it. Maybe then they would cherish it more versus store it in a drawer.
life works on equations.. the brain drafts too many logical answers for No questions at ll. that is the problem we face now
humm. profound indeed. i never thought of it that way until now!
JR - Yeah. That's true too... and thanks. :-)Madison - That is a good perspective... More like where your treasure is there your heart is... Or is it the other way round? Nancy - Yeah... Chriz - Yep. And your comment goes to prove that... :-pGayathri - Thanks (if that was a compliment, which i suspect is...) :-)
