This is the story of a rich man and his son who took the trip which opened his eyes to a whole new meaning to being rich and the most important things in life.
One day like any other day, a rich man took his son on a trip to the country. He wanted to show his son how poor people live and what it really means to be poor. They found a family with a farm, a very poor family and spend a few nights with them. When they returned home the father asked her how she liked the trip.
“ was great, Dad ,” the son replied. “ Did you see how poor people can be ?” He asked the father. “ Oh yeah ,” the son said.
“So what did you learn from your trip ?” He asked the father. The son replied:
“ saw that we have a 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, “ They showed me how poor we are. ”
This story serves to remind us about the true value of things in life. It serves to remind us how often we focus on the material side of things, not see what really matters in life. And we can not understand that it is all about how we see things in life, it all depends on our perspective. What is valuable is a person possession of another award. It all depends on our perspective.
We must be thankful for what we have and not be jealous of the things that others have. The better we understand this the best people we become. And that’s the most important thing in life!
