A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values such as honour, kindness and trust no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion.

The true worth of an individual, in recent times, is measured by considering their wealth and

should not be so.   The true worth of an individual, should be determined based on the attributes exhibited by the person and not by material gains.
This
is because wealth can be deceitful, hiding the true nature of a

However

is of the heart, out of which their true behaviour reflects.
Furthermore
, it is from deep within that people do things to impact or destroy other people’s live.

is usually done from the abundance of their heart.  
Moreover
, one of the major characteristics of judging the worth of an individual is that, it must be bias free.
Thus
, using affluence as a yard-stick to measure worthiness is synonymous to saying a poor

is not worthy.
