A wealthy father brought his son to a village one day. The father desired to demonstrate to his son how impoverished a man can be. They spent time touring the farm of a poor family. Following his return, the father asked his son:
– How did the trip make you feel?
– Impressive, Dad!
The father inquired, “Have you ever observed how the poor live?”
– Yes, I can see it!
– So, what did you learn from this journey?
The boy responded, “We have one dog and they have four. We have pools, while they have rivers. We use artificial lighting at night, and their lights contain stars. We have walls to protect ourselves, while they have companions. They watch television and spend time with family and friends.”
The father was silent. The boy added, “Thank you for showing me how poor we are!”
❤️ We are not wealthy simply because we have a lot of money. Love, compassion, friendship, and family truly enrich our lives.
