One day a wealthy father took his son on a trip to the country so that the son could see how the poor lived. They spent a day and a night at the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” “Very good, Dad!” “Did you see how poor some people can be?” “Yeah!” “And what did you learn?”
We have imported lamps in the house; they have the stars. Our patio reaches to the front yard; they have the whole horizon.” When the little boy was finished, the father was speechless. His son then added, “Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are!” – Anonymous
Do you believe you are rich only to find you are poor?
For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul? (Matthew 16:26)
