Time or Money: Which Is More Valuable?

Money comes and goes. Time just goes.

And always remember, time is a gift from God. Money is made by people.

I've seen people crammed for money in order to survive. I've heard many people answered for money to this question. Is money really that valuable?

They say money is the answer to all life's problems. Money will make their life easier and comfortable.

Yes, and that is true.

But if you we’re given two choices, what will you choose? You can have all your time without money or you can have money but just in a span of time?

But think of it, many people searched for money their whole life and by the time, they have it, they spend it again to regain their health that they have squandered in search of these earthly treasures.

They looked back and say “Where is my life?”

And only wished they could just turn back the time they have missed.

They’re too weak now to enjoy everything and use all the money for treatment fees and bills. They have millions, but can you buy your past with that? I don’t think so.



If I were to choose, what will it be?


I think I will choose time. Time is much more valuable. With time, you can make more money, but with money, you can't buy time. Even the richest person in the world cannot buy his own past.

Time is money, if we only how to use our time, then we can have the money we want. There is no shop in this world that offers transportation back to the past.

Speaking of time, it flew so fast, like grains of sand on your hand. If you cannot make the most of these sands on your hand, it will drip and then when you know it, it's already gone.

Time is perishable. We are given 24 hours a day to use time on all useful things that could also benefit our own future. After the 24-hour period, God will give you again another 24 hours to use. But choose to live on those 24-hours with happiness and no regrets. For the lost 24 hours will never be carried over the next day.

Time is precious gift to us from God. Make it valuable and waste it wisely. Spend it on useful things.

Those who are unwell need money to buy time. I wish I had more money to buy every single one of them all the time they need.

Peace to all.

I vote for time as well, and with it, merely to be surrounded by nature to write about and take more photos of it. That would be a life made in heaven for me.

You gave the universal answer to your question of choosing time or money.

Money is replaceable.

Time is irreplaceable.

Very thought provoking. Voted up.

Interesting dilemma: while time can make money, money can also buy time. Also, time can be wasted or spent efficiently just like money. I don't think it is an either-or situation. I think they feed into each other: buy time by outsourcing tasks, and time will buy you money with hard work.

Interesting question Unknown spy! So many answers and perspectives. You summed it up, money is made by people and time is a gift of God. I really think that God didn't want us to end up like we are now, money being involved. This is a question that can be debated forever. Even so, without either, you can't live. Time is money and money is time.

Interesting viewpoint, us. I heard someone say one time he'd rather be rich because he could hire people to do the things he would have to normally do, which would then save him time. Be that as it may, God gives us both time and money and expects us to use both wisely.

Please don't misunderstand me. I'm not one of these people that think if you ask for it and pray for it, God will automatically make you rich. I do believe that God gives us everything we need.

King David was rich, but loved God more than riches. That is what made him richer than all the silver and gold. That is also why God blessed him - because his heart was right.

Money can be valuable if it used for God's purposes.

I think time is money unknown spy. And as you say if we have time we can make more money. But one has money then one squandors both time and money.

Great thoughts. Time can get you money but money can't buy time.

Time is def more valuable than money. Anyone can make a lot of money if the think they can do it they can. Anytime you think something it can come true you just have to put that thought into your head everyday which can sometimes be hard to do, but no matter how much you think about getting more time, you cant.
