The difference between rich and poor

The difference between rich and poor Empty The difference between rich and poor

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him 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 them.”
The boy’s father was speechless.
Then his son added, “Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.”

Lovely story Wind-Dancer, just goes to prove that no matter how poor we feel we are, there will always be someone worse off.

Great lesson Wind-Dancer! How awesome to see thru the eyes of a child!
I can most certainly relate being born into a family of 8 kids. I always say I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth. Ha!
Do you know, I never once considered us poor growing up! I saw thru the purity of the eyes of a child.

Good Post
