(De)vlaued

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.

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...

Nancy said...

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.

Chriz said...

life works on equations.. the brain drafts too many logical answers for No questions at ll. that is the problem we face now

Gayatri said...

humm. profound indeed. i never thought of it that way until now!

Bungi said...

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... :-p

Gayathri - Thanks (if that was a compliment, which i suspect is...) :-)
