1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Consumerism (6E Leung Wing Tung)

Do you like shopping? How often do you go shopping? People love shopping. They spend most of their free time on shopping centers, so their bedrooms are full of stuffs that they never use. They don’t seem to understand that some of the goods which they have bought are actually unnecessary.
Being a consumerist can cause many serious negative consequences.
First, it can destroy our environment. Consumers always buy things which occupy many spaces of their home. Once they have found that they need more spaces, they will throw away the unnecessary things which have never been used before. It creates many solid wastes and hence increases the burden on our landfill.

Second, it can cause pressures on themselves and their family members. Sometimes people like buying things by paying credit cards. If they cannot settle the debt, they will commit suicide. Also, asking family members for money to pay the debt can harm the relationship between them. There will be arguments about this problem because they need to cope with the problem of loans.

If we kick the habit of buying unnecessary things, we can save money, work less and spend more time with our family and friends. It will then improve our relationship with our family and friends.

To conclude, consumerism will cause a lot of negative effects. Think twice before you buy anything!

News Sharing – Compensated Dating (6DE Wong Chung Yin)

I think many young girls are too open and think money is important than their bodies. This problem is very serious. Young children agreed to date with the old men in exchange for money. If the parents of these teenagers know that their sons or daughters go on compensated dating, they will be very disappointed because all they want is perhaps that their sons and daughters can lead happy lives and have healthy bodies. We should protect ourselves and resist temptation.

Young girls who earn money after going on compensated dating usually buy some expensive branded products. It is definitely not good for their personal development. When we are young, we should study hard instead of earning money for the sake of satisfying our wants.

News Sharing – Compensated Dating (6DE Chan Mei Ting)

Only a few teenage girls or boys have noticed the consequences of going on compensated dating: the high possibility of deadly diseases, meeting clients who may rob or kill them and so on. More importantly, they do not understand going on compensated dating will adversely affect their psychological and physical well-being.

In my opinion, compensated dating is not a new social problem. Like prostitutes in ancient times, some people will sell their bodies for money. I think this is the choice of a person. The consequences of compensated dating are deadly and obvious. People go on compensated dating because they think money is more important than their bodies. They have to accept the consequences of their actions.
