Nowadays, people are all about material possessions. Their only goal in life is to have as many proprieties as they can, and as much money as they can. Education fell on the second plan, and it’s not considered a requirement any longer. Many persons aren’t interested in educating themselves or educating others anymore. Unfortunately, they think that if they have money it will all be alright – because that’s what society taught us.
But they are wrong, and so is the society. And since we are the ones who constitute a part of the society, we are just as guilty for not taking a position.
I can’t disagree, material possessions are important, too. A home, the need to provide food, clothes, they have been always essentials. If you want to home material things, you have to work hard, to be responsible, and to think in the future. But what people should understand is that material things are not the most important parts of their lives.
They should also think about the spiritual part. They should educate themselves to be more profound, more intelligent, and to have a better perspective about life. Because education is indeed important. The more educated you are, the more you know. Knowledge is the strong foundation for achieving your dreams. It’s also important not only for the individual’s development but for the society’s. What if nobody had been preoccupied about knowledge? Would have people progressed?
I think the answer is clear – no; probably never.
People like to run away from their problems, but this time, we have to face the truth. Even for having money and proprieties, you should be educated. It’s normality. Firstly, you should know how to manage all the material possessions you have. What’s the point in having money if you can’t keep it or enjoy it properly? Of if you don’t know how to make more of it? Because you need money if you want to buy something. But for making money, you should have an entrepreneurial thinking. And for that, you have to be educated. Some might have a native gift, but unless they sharpen their skills, it’s all in vain.
Let’s suppose that you already have those material possessions. It doesn’t matter how. It means that you are rich – rich people like sumptuous things. Should you be an educated person to understand the beauty of art? That’s what is expected from you, after all. If you have the possibilities to travel around the world, you should understand its beauty. And you should be capable of appreciating it at its true value.
In consequence, education is more important than material possessions and it’s thanks to education we are able to get any material comfort.
If you have money but no education, you aren’t wealthy at all.
