What can I say about money that hasn't already been said to death? Not much! So I decided to share some random money funnies!
Perhaps you remember Tevye, one of the great thinkers of all time, and his future son-in-law Perchik. Embroiled in a discussion about money, Perchik declares, "Money is the world's curse."
Tevye's response: "May the Lord smite me with it. And may I never recover."
That Tevye! He's got it going on!
And speaking of great thinkers, my daughter Mary has tried her best to contribute something to every day of this photo challenge! She has talked about the subject of the day, offered me helpful suggestions, posed for pictures, and drawn a lot of original artwork. But when she saw that today's topic was Money...well, that was the high-water mark for Mary!
For reasons which I do not understand, based on a discussion I do not remember, Mary (who is only 7 years old) has been obsessed for years about one day going to the Mint in Washington DC so she can watch money being made...and so she can buy a sheet of un-cut money. I have no explanation other than to suggest that perhaps she and Alex P. Keaton may have a thing or two in common.
At any rate, here is the picture she drew today. It requires no description.
Finally, I leave you on a serious note. This musical video clip pretty much sums up financial life at Stately Bennett Manor. ;-)
Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap
and into many foolish and harmful desires
that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith
and pierced themselves with many griefs.
1 Timothy 6:9-10
(Or...as my favorite preacher said recently, it's not a sin to have money. It's not even a sin to enjoy the money God has chosen to share with you. But to love it and allow it to rule you? There's your sin problem!)
