Our Money Or Life

Your money or your life was the alternative that was given to Jack Benny, comedian famous for acting as a stingy character in one of their show, by an assailant who harassed him. When Benny did not respond, the robber repeated his question. After a long silence followed by a third mandate of responding, Benny replied, I’m thinking, I’m thinking, and the studio audience leapt with a laughter that was maintained for a few minutes without stopping.How humorous it is to imagine that someone might actually need time to consider what the money or life is the most appropriate response.And how tragic it is to realize that many people, when it is confronted with the same decision, the wrong decision and choose money over any other thing that gives real meaning to their lives, as the couple, children, friendship, health, a friend, decency, moral .the Torah and their mandates.Money has a profound emotional influence on what we are (whether you do or not and as some believe) (so you have both coupons), we sometimes choose that friend that impact us by their attentions and their belongings and not the humble good people but it seems does not offer a very comfortable future, we think that it does not have much to contribute us.The irony of life is that in our youth we leave our health by wealth, so that in our old age we can use our wealth to try to regain our health and thus passed us life without living it really, only collecting, until we realize realize that perhaps we were wrong and give advice to our children and grandchildren that do not equal, but that was the example we gave them, that was what they saw and lived, materially above everything else.Fortune magazine released its annual list of the richest people in the world. Bill Gates of Microsoft is still the first on the list, five members of the Walton family are included in the list of the wealthiest in the world.
