No one who loves money can be judged innocent (Thought for the day)

This is a story about three different families in a town. The first family was a family of three earning as father, son and daughter. They were focused on amassing wealth, gold, possessions, houses, and land. They do not know how to donate to others.  If anything is available free,  they will enjoy it as much as they can. Second family. The family is a treacherous family who lived a life of luxury by deceiving others, borrowing money from the bank and others keeping their wealth in the proxy name and account.  They lived a luxury life on others’ money. Third family was an elderly couple with one income from husband who was honestly retired from government service, raised children and was living a life of self-sufficiency without any support. Both of them were also suffered with disease during their life time. Yet they were not even slightly interested in other’s money. At this scenario,  there was a severe earthquake in that town. The first family died in thought of losing all their properties in waste. They are wandering as unsatisfied souls in the loss. Second family. After being trapped in the earthquake, severely suffered a concussion and was thrown straight into a fiery hell. Someone enjoyed the properties which they had illegally added. Third family. They died peacefully with nothing to lose and attained heavenly birth in the presence of the Lord. “Two things I ask of you, LORD;     do not refuse me before I die: 8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me;     give me neither poverty nor riches,     but give me only my daily bread. 9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you     and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal,     and so dishonor the name of my God.”   (Proverbs 30: 7-9) “When times are good, be happy;     but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one     as well as the other. Therefore, no one can discover     anything about their future.”  (Ecclesiastes 7:14) “No one who loves money can be judged innocent; his efforts to get rich have led him into sin.[b] 6 Many people have been ruined because of money, brought face-to-face with disaster. 7 Money is a trap for those who are fascinated by it, a trap that every fool falls into.”  (SIRACH 31: 5-7)
