I am one of the newly wealthy people in this world. I just found out that I am carrying
our second child. We became rich beyond belief when our first daughter was born six
years ago. Financially, we have struggled with daycare costs, diapers, formula, new
clothes and shoes that she seems to grow out of before the season is even over. We also
moved into our first home shortly after her birth and had to replace our automobile after
it was smashed into by a drunk driving a large truck.
However, our lives are quite prosperous as my husband and I have careers that we enjoy
and we each work for a family-oriented company. We were so fortunate that our child
has had few sick visits to her pediatrician. She is healthy and her continued growth
proves that fact. Our new home is small, but close to church, grandparents, family,
friends and a park. Our car was empty of any passengers and parked beside our home
for the night when it was hit by the impaired driver.
Is there another meaning to prosperity? Surely, the amount of money in one’s bank
account does not make a person wealthy. If so, terminally ill people could simply buy
their health. Lonely people could afford a friend or two. Broken homes would be
restored if a happy marriage could be purchased.
I am truly rich and I want to share the wealth. The One who clothes the Lilies of the field
has never let us go naked. The One who feeds the sparrows has never let my family feel
hunger. I will keep trusting in Him and watch my ‘accounts’ continue to grow.
