True Wealth

Father Talking to SonOne 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. The trip was very eye opening and when they got home, the father asked his son,“How did you enjoy our trip..?”

“It was really good Dad!” came the response.  

“Did you see how poor people can be..?” asked the boy’s father. “Yeah, I sure did Dad!” the boy responded.
The father then asked, “And what did you learn from our trip..?”

We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. 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!”
