One day money asked a pertinent question to time. Sir, I have a question so far and I’m still in the struggle of digging up the answer — you sure have an opinion about us?
That was surprising for time to hear money say “about us?” then it goes on… And time seemed to be quiet, patient and wise by paying attention to money and to what he had to say.
Money then went on and asked: “which one of us is more valuable, You or I? Money was curious about the answer he would hear because he knew one thing about himself “ Who in this world wouldn’t ever wish for money, like living a good lifestyle, traveling wherever it feels like to go to and being able to do things they wouldn’t have ever dreamed of doing?” In money’s view, that’s the power of freedom!
Meanwhile, time didn’t just jump right in to judgment but wanted to make a clear statement over the question in order to avoid any unnecessary arguments or pride for whatsoever the reason might be. Indeed, time being wise and always needs time to make things right said to money in a gentle manner: you’re so right about that statement and there are so many things people would say about you.
Just look at the fact there are situations and needs that I will never be a good fit. For instance, I cannot buy foods and feed a neighborhood or a whole family nor could I buy clothing or bail someone out of prison? I cannot come to help to the needy or pay off someone’s debts or a place s/he has stayed for a couple of weeks.
There are many other things that you do and I won’t be able to do. However, it would be fair if I may ask you this one thing. How often have you ever seen and been there for people in days of happiness, sorrow, disappointment, despair, you name it when they really need you or these things that are virtues and feelings also emotions like happiness, joy, love, kindness, patience, caring, etc. Can you afford to buy the least of them by any occasions?
Thus, time ended up saying, “Hear me now money, we are like human beings with values, in order words, they can in a certain way make good use of us and at the same time misunderstand our value, still on top of that we leave our judgment and feelings and emotions out of this – for we have none of these gifts.”
