Many people have different opinions when it comes to the morality of wealth, some people think being wealthy is unjust, or a good thing, and there should be limits when it comes to wealth. Just to note this essay is about the wealth of money, wealth is sometimes a general term so I hope I made it clear on what kind of wealth I am talking about here.
Is It Immoral?
I do not think being wealthy and working hard is not immoral, the reason why I think this. The bible often states that working hard is something humans should do, and working to achieve a goal such as becoming wealthy is not immoral either.It can be immoral though if you steal and cheat for money. It is also immoral to love money over everything else, there are many more important things than money such as family, happiness, health, and etc, so stealing and loving money over everything else is immoral.
Is It Immoral That Others Have More Money Than Others?
Some people think giving money away for charity is a good thing and that it’s wrong that some people are richer than others. I personally think that is opinion is illogical and stupid, the reason I think this is because, working hard to get above others, and working hard to become wealthy is not wrong.
I do not think giving money away to charity is a terrible thing, but you should have the choose to give money away, and choose not to give it away, being generous is moral, but being smart with your generosity is moral too.
Should There Be Limits?
I do not believe there should be limits to becoming wealthy, the reason why I think this is because, first of all humans are meant to work hard, second of all the longer you work the more wealth you will probably gain. The only limit is yourself, and how far you will want to continue.
I believe that working hard, is the right and moral way of gaining wealth, and become rich.
