Value of a man

How do you value a man?
By the amount of money he has in the bank?
To me, it looks increasingly to be so...
What happened to a man's character?
Is that not worth anything any more?
What about hard work?
Or commitment?
Or tolerance?
What is shaping us to be so "realistic"?
Where "if we don't have money, we also cannot be happy cos we will always be arguing about money".

God, what is the true value of a man?
Is this true anymore?
" ...give me neither poverty nor riches,
but give me only my daily bread.

Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, 'Who is the LORD ?'
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonour the name of my God."
