In todays modern society, we are encouraged to believe that the wealthier members of society are somehow more creditable than the less well-off.
Many very young children learn that some of their friends have more toys, better clothes or bigger houses than others. Junior school children notice who arrives at school in the most expensive car, and who is able to go horse riding or ski-ing. Teenagers often sneer at classmates whose trainers don't have an expensive brand name, even if the product is just as good and the best their parents can manage.
Sometimes material wealth is earned by hard work, but not always. Talents are not shared equally among the population, and some children benefit from vast fortunes without any effort on their part.
Often a family which appears to be well-off because of an expensive lifestyle is actually deeply in debt and worth less financially than family which budgets and spends its money more prudently.
What matters is making the most of your abilities and resources.
Self-worth is all about knowing that you are not wasting your talents, and are happy and successful at whatever you have chosen to do.
Material wealth is a poor measure in all these respects.
However, money is like other non-living object are just tools for us to used. Money is NOT the root of all evil.
The Bible says: "LOVE of money is the root of all evil".
With proper used of money, it can be used to help many people who are less fortunate than you.
