in my opinion, money can both benefit people and do harm to them. first, we can't deny that money is useful we need money to buy our daily necessities such as food, houses and clothing, etc. generally speaking, more money can make us live more comfortably. secondly, if we have more money, we can take part in more social activities. we can travel widely and have more experience. we can receive higher education, increase our knowledge and develop our skills. in addition, we will have more ways to help others. all those can help us live an interesting and meaningful life.however, money can also do harm to us, especially when we have large amounts of it. if a person p[aces money prior to anything else, he will tend to lose the p[easure of his life. since everything means nothing to him except caring for more money, he will lose friends, or even the care and warmth from his family. if this happens, money on[y brings to him loneliness.
so, i think we can't regard money simply as a good thing or a bad one. if we use it properly, it will benefit us a lot; otherwise, it will do harm to us or it can even ruin us.
