Dark side of Money


The reason why I’m introducing you to money this early is for you to be good money managers with the right values as kids. Hopefully maging habit yan at madala ninyo as you become responsible adults.

Money should be earned and used for your own good and the people around you and God’s purpose. Alam n’yo na yan di ba? Ganyan ang mensahe sa “Why become rich?” kung naaalala n’yo pa.

I know it’s been a year pero dapat hindi yan makalimutan.

Especially, money has its dark side.

And it’s really unfortunate that money has its dark side.

Ipinapakita yan dito sa Discovery Channel’s documentary sa ibaba na nagkataon namang na-discover ko lang dahil sa Drug Trade investigation ng House of Representatives.

Sa aking pananaw matapos ko mapanood ng ilang beses ang video sa ibaba, ang pera ay kinita at nagamit (o patuloy na kinikita at ginagamit) mula at para sa mga sumusunod: krimen, gangs, guns, drugs, sex, murder, and other people’s harm.

Yung documentarista (host) na dating gangster ang mismo nagsasabi na ayaw n’ya na balikan (check 01:02 and 33:19) ang kanyang lumang buhay after realizing “crime is wrong.” Samantala ang iba naman, gang life ang gusto kahit pa daw mauwi sa kulungan (21:47) o kamatayan (22:00 and 22:43).

Kanya-kanyang choice lang talaga yan.

Choice will always be yours, of course. But before choosing, make sure you ask this: “What is the wisest thing to do?” Siguro naman agree kayo na yung first choice ang pinaka-wais (wise), tama ba?

(Ayon sa isang Proverbs: Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. It is interpreted as “Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.” Wala tayong karapatan i-judge ang mga tao sa video, Diyos lang ang may karapatan. Tanging hiling ko lang mapabarkada kayo sa hindi maglalayo sa inyo sa Panginoon 🙂 More ideas about bad company here.)

(Documentary tungkol sa Bilibid prison entitled “Inside the Gangster Code” na ginawa ng nagbagong-buhay na gangster na si Louis Ferrante. Naibahagi n’ya rin ang kanyang kuwento sa librong “Unlocked: The Life and Crimes of a Mafia Insider” (picture sa ibaba). Video mula sa youtube channel ng ABS-CBN, Published on Sep 19, 2016)
