Wealth: Wealth is the quantity of money, valuable
possessions, or property.
It is the state of being rich and affluent. Definition of
Poverty: Poverty is the state of being really poor.
They have little or no money and few or no material possessions. They are living without the basic needs of life. There is no clear answer how to become rich. Rich people usually have good qualifications, and a good job. Or they might of just won the lottery The law states that every human being, male or female, has equal rights. However, when it comes to wealth equality then no one is really equal.
Rich people live in big expensive houses posh areas, with all the luxuries. In comparison the poor people live in council houses, and use cheap transport.
There is a big difference between the lives of the poor and rich, so it will be difficult to make people equal.
I don't think everyone in Britain will ever be equal due to the circumstances in the country. A lack of jobs and poor qualifications are some reasons why. Lionel Messi is a footballer who plays for Barcelona. His father was a steel worker and his mother was a cleaner. He started playing football at the age of 5, with his father. At the age of 11 Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. The sporting director of FC Barcelona, saw Messi's talent, and arranged a contract him. Barcelona offered to pay for his medical bills if he was willing to move to Spain. Until now Messi has earned £27.5 million.
May 2012 Lionel Messi Buddhist's believe that they should earn money without harming others, and within the bounds of the 5 moral precepts. Having made it, they use it meaningfully and in ways that make them happy and fulfilled, rather than spending it on luxuries or never spending it at all. But while enjoying themselves they should never forget that there are many who do not enjoy the blessings they do. In a spirit of generosity they share their wealth with others and support charities and religious institutions. Christians make sure that they earn their living in an honest way that does not hurt other people. They believe that they should be judged upon their actions and not their wealth. Poverty occurs because there is a huge population, but little money to share between us. There are a limited number of jobs, resources and places to live.
Children suffer the most when people are poor because they are not brought up well. For example, a poorer education and health. Attitudes to
British Poverty Wealth and Poverty comes under
'Right Livelihood' Right Livelihood "You should earn your livings in a
righteous way and it should be gained
legally and peacefully" "You should never be involved in
a job which could harm another
human being" Never deal in weapons Never work in meat production
and butchery Never sell intoxicants and poisons
i.e. alcohol and drugs This is the key belief from Buddhism about how people earn money. Jesus told his followers that being wealthy is not easy.
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God" Jesus also taught that people should use their wealth unselfishly, to look after one another.
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." Luke 18:25 Matthew 25:35-36 Winning the Lottery If someone who was suffering from poverty won the lottery their lives would be changed completely.
Charities can help the people more who are suffering from poverty.
Funds from the National Lottery should be shared and used to help those in poverty.
The Health Lottery should fund over the world. Buddhist teachings say that you shouldn't gamble, as it does not involve honest work. It encourages greediness and laziness.
Some Christians do not encourage gambling, however charities have used the good causes of the funding from the Lottery. For example the new Health Lottery raises money for good causes within respective areas.
Proverbs 23:4 says: "Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint." Thank you for listening
