How the poor live

One day, a father of a very wealthy
family took his son on a trip to the
country with the firm purpose of
showing his son how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights
on the farm of what would be
considered a very poor family. On their
return from their trip, the father asked
his son, “How was the trip?”
“It was great, Dad.”
“Did you see how poor people live?”
the father asked.
“Oh yeah,” said the son.
“So, tell me, what did you learn from
the trip?” asked the father.
The son answered, “I saw that we have
one dog and they had four. We have a
pool that reaches to the middle of our
garden, and they have a creek that has
no end. We have imported lanterns in
our garden, and they have the stars at
night. Our patio reaches to the front
yard, and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live
on, and they have fields that go
beyond our sight. We have servants
who serve us, but they serve others.
We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to
protect us; they have friends to protect
The boy’s father was speechless.
Then his son added, “Thanks, Dad, for
showing me how poor we are.”
We feel small when compared to something big, and of course the wealth of God has no limits, while if we can be thankful we can enjoy creation it, so that we can say thank god and I am happy, to measure of wealth or knowledge themselves with others, dont arrogant, as the proverb says above the sky still there are the sky
