MONEY, and how it affects certain people

"It's only money." "You can't take it with you." Have you heard these old sayings somewhere in your life? Sure you have. We all have. And for the most part, they are both true. Along with the saying, "the love of money is the root of all evil," which was been mis-quoted numerous times as "(money) is the root of all evil," and how many times did we shout "amen"?

You do not need a program, or road map, to let you know that today's subject is "money." What a "lucrative" topic. A topic that is bound to make "cents."

Can you imagine what our world would be without money? Let's see. Broke. Worthless. And a lot of poverty. Plus going back to the "barter system," trading chickens for lumber. That sort of thing.

Money is good if used and managed with a realistic manner. Money too, is a non-living thing, and doesn't know who is handling it. I said that to say this. I have heard preachers in years past, one near Destin, Florida say in his pulpit, "a casino developer offered me one-hundred thousand dollars to help with the expansion of our church, and I told him, (sinful) money will never be used in (this) house of God." How noble. How dedicated. Did it ever occur that money is only ink and numbers printed on a special grade of paper and doesn't belong in the "Evil Idols Department"?

I would have taken the casino developer's money without batting an eye, invited him to church and thanked him. Guess that's why I wouldn't be a good preacher.

One closing view about money. It is NOT a sin to be filthy rich. Time was, not so far back in our country, religious people mis-taught the scripture, "it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter heaven." I know. I've heard this one a few times. Riches, when worshipped with a heart full of greed, can keep one from having eternal life. But riches when used for good, is fine with God. Even Abraham, husband of Sarah and father of Isaac, the Bible says, "was very rich." So was King David and his son, Solomon. I guess my point has been made.

Now for the "meat" of my story. And this is not a gambling-related topic, but a topic that will cause you to stop, think, and search yourself for the answer to the question I am asking: "What would you do for one-hundred thousand dollars?"

Take your time. And if you like, leave your answer in the comment box below. I think I may receive a lot of interesting answers.

While you are thinking of what you would do with that much "moo-lah," . . .here are 10 things that "I" would do to get one-hundred thousand dollars," . . .

1.) Eat (at one sitting) 12 Krystal burgers. With 3 cups of black coffee.

2.) Go out on a date with Jessica Alba. And pay for her dinner.

3.) Drink samples of coffee's from around the world.

4.) Fly to Washington, D.C., and beg to see President Obama.

5.) Appear on CNN, on my own accord, and tell all the one-liner jokes in my arsenal without pay.

6.) Fly to New York City, where CBS Studios are located and "crash" the taping of Two and a Half Men, Mike and Molly and if I wasn't arrested by then, continue my "ruckus romp" by crashing The Late Show with David Letterman. Bet Dave would be surprised.

7.) Agree to sell the rights to why I did all that "crashing" to a powerful publishing company and make tons of money.

8.) Try to find Casey Anthony and see if she would take me out to eat at one of Florida's finest burger joints.

9.) Sing on Fifth Avenue in New York City and give all of my proceeds to charity.

10.) Visit Charles Manson and while there, be wearing a gorilla suit.

These tough things would be "the" things "I" would do if someone offered me one-hundred thousand dollars. Tax-free. Cash. In small bills of all denominations.

You see, "I" am not afraid to throw my dignity in the sewer. Trash my name as if it were used carbon paper. With that one-hundred thousand dollars, I could take ALL of my followers on a thee-week vacation to Las Vegas or maybe to the Caribbean.

After giving a big chunk of my "loot" to some deserving charity.

Anyone got the $100,00.00 to start this game?

Just think what YOU could do

with money like this. Your money woes would be over. You could buy a new car, home, or your wife a new dress.

Taking care of all my cats is number one. I would invest it wisely, so that I would be assured I would always have enough to take care of my cats and my house! For me, the best part about having money is the peace of mind it would bring. Great hub Kenneth!

Dear Writer20,

see my apology for chuckandus . . .Yahoo Email NEVER notifified me of your comment, and for their error, I apologize. Family is first. I have some family whom I could help a lot with this kind of dough. And yes, I would help my church and some nationally-established, trusted charities.

Thanks for your kind remark.

After my house burnt down I lost everything. Now my family are hours away. I can't even see my 6yo daughter and 10yo son. And my most beautiful wife. I would simply go home and give them everything I can and be the most wonderful father and husband that ever lived. And keep nothing for myself. Just to be with my family would be priceless.

I would be able to afford to travel to an area that offers better quality treatment for my reoccurrence of Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer. I originally was treated in Minneapolis and was in remission for 7 years. However since I have divorced and moved to South Dakota and in th process have become uninsured and have no income. With 100,000 dollars I would be able to travel to see my gynecological oncologist and I would have a decent chance beating my cancer which just returned back into remission. Be thankful everyday for your health....

This is a very good hub. I like that you pointed out that wanting or needing money, as well as having money, is not a bad thing. It is how it is used. I never understood why churches wouldn't accept donations from anyone. What a relief to the poorer members of the congregation to not have to feel bad about weeks when they couldn't make donations.

As for me, FOR the money, I would actually sing in public. Which is the most terrifying action I can think of doing. It would be humiliating, and I am sure that I would actually be paid extra by my audience if they thought it would make me stop. WITH the money, I would pay off our house note, pay off our debts, pay back family who have generously helped us through our recent rough times, perform much needed maintenance on our home, and take my husband and daughter out to eat at Golden Corral. Without having to be afraid that a we wouldn't be able to pay a bill afterwards. And I would donate to all local families who are in need. So many people here are struggling, and when they have unexpected medical bills, house fires, accidents, or job loss they are devastated.

Most of you are saying what you would do with the money. The question was "what would you do to get it?" My answer: anything. I have no shame, and barely have the pieces of paper that rule my life. Anything

I also invested in a business that I always wanted to have invested in properties and own couples of business to make more money and keep invested the money so I wouldn't be working for anyone else and help rebuild different community in the Atlanta GA areas and be debtfree God said in his words Owe no man anything but to love him and God also said in Deuteronomy chapter Eight verse eighteen But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God for it is he that giveth thee power to get Wealth Thank You
