RICHES OF THE HEART FOR LIFE

Bottled drinking water - “Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation ... even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind.”

A funny story is told about a young woman who confided to her new lover, "My father is gone and my mother is in very poor health. It looks as if she will die soon and I will inherit all her money. We should get married; after all I'm going to be a millionaire! " Two weeks later the man became her stepfather.

I have heard it said that from the time an infant first struggles to get her toes into her mouth, life is a continual struggle to make both ends meet. Those who are working one or more jobs and feel as if they are barely getting by can relate.

But I also know that the pursuit of money, as an end in itself, is an empty endeavor. Happy are those who seek riches which cannot be counted in a bank or measured on a scale. For they will never know real poverty.

I believe writer Rudyard Kipling got it right when he admonished students at McGill University to never waste their time fighting for money. He said that some day they will meet someone who cares little for money and will not take it, even if offered. At that time, they will discover how poor they really are!

Yet how very wealthy are those who seek riches of the heart. They will always have more than enough of all that brings true happiness.
