We asked the question – would you rather have more time or more money?
It is a hard choice, we’ve probably all wished we had a bit extra in the bank, and all longed for a day to go on forever, or another few moments with someone we love. So, we were not surprised to get a mix of answers.
Whilst we got answers on both sides, most answers came down on the side of time. Time it seems is precious, and even after a year of lockdown, we wish we had more of it.
But perhaps the most poignant comment we got was that “The worst situation must surely to be short on both: making just enough to get by, but no time to earn more to do more than just survive, and no time to enjoy it even if you did.”
Today we pray for those trapped by poverty, whether of money or time.
