Riches

Which man is richer?
The man that has every material thing money can buy
Palaces, cars, yachts
Yet, love is a word only for possessions, not people
Or the man that has a family
Living in a tiny home, old car
New clothes a rarity, used the norm
Yet, love overflowing, hugs and kisses by the barrel
And Faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is supreme

Both are rich
One materially, the other Spiritually
One leaves his riches upon death
To be fought over and cause family division
One takes his riches into eternal life
Yet, at the same time, leaves his riches
To grow and be shared by many

Here is the way of our Father
The materially rich man may have his worldly riches
And know and love our Father, practice his teachings
And gain riches of both material and Spiritual
Taking the Spiritual with him and leaving the material on this earth
But, in reality, he will have much less of the material riches in life
For, with the Spiritual,
One gives freely without question

One moment, please
If the Spiritually rich man does not share the love and forgiveness he is given
He is no better than the materially rich one that gives not
For Love and Forgiveness were given freely by our Lord and must be shared to be realized
The riches and joy are in the giving not the hoarding
