A Story of True Wealth:
” One day, a rich father took his son on a trip to the village. Hw wanted to show him how poor some people can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On their return from the trip, the father asked his son “How was the trip?” and he replied “It was great, Dad”. “Didi you see how poor people live?’ the father asked. “OH YES”, said the son. “So tell me what you learned from the trip?” asked the father.
The sone answered: “We have one dog, they have four. We have a pool, they have rivers. We have tube-lights at night, they have stars. We buy food, they grow theirs. We have walls to protect us, they have a community. We have television, they spend time with family and relatives sharing stories.” The boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added: “Thanks , Dad for showing me how poor we are.”
Moral of the Story: It is not money that makes you rich, it is simplicity, love, compassion, friendship, values and family that make our lives rich. B careful not to want the material so much that you forget about what truly makes you wealthy.
Firstly, can we just say that the young man is WOKE. But it’s a really good story. It’s become so natural to replace the purpose of certain things in our lives with money, perhaps we do so because we feel more secure because we have control over it and not other humans. Sad but telling of the consistent nature of human.
