What It Means To Be Poor?

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” “It was great, Dad.” “Did you see how poor people can be?” the father asked. “Oh Yeah” said the son. “So what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father. The son answered, “I saw that we have one 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 them.” With this the boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added, “Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are.” Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don’t have.

What is one person’s worthless object is another’s prize possession. It is all based on one’s perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the bounty we have, instead of worrying about wanting more.

A DAUGHTER:

A couple made a deal the night of their Marriage to NOT open the door of their room to anybody who comes knocking in the morning for any reason!

In the morning, the parents of the husband came & knocked on the door, the husband & the wife were looking at each other & as they agreed before, they didn’t open the door.
...
After a while the parents of the bride came knocking at the door to check on them, the couple were looking at each other, then the bride dropped a tear & started crying she said: “I cannot keep them knocking & not open the door, I miss them already.” The husband didn’t say anything & he let her open the door for her parents.

Years & years passed & the couple had 5 children, the first ones were boys & the 5th was a little girl, when she was born the father was extremely happy that Almighty blessed him with her, & he threw a Huge Party for her in Grand style, people were so amazed with his joy & his happiness that they asked him, why are you so happy with her more than you were before with her older brothers?

He answered simply: “She is the one who will open the door for me.”

Baby girls are the comfort of the eyes of their father!
They hold the key to their mothers hearts!
Daughters are really unique.
They care for their parents even after they are married.
Its rightly said, “A son is a son till he gets a Wife, a daughter is a daughter the rest of her Life!
Dedicated to all daughters & Daughter in Laws.

Rich dad's guide to investing: what the rich invest in that the poor and middle class do not! [Book]

Robert Kiyosaki reveals the secrets of how the wealthiest Americans become even wealthier, and how ALL Americans can learn how to benefit from some simple investing secrets -- merely by knowing where and how to invest their money. We've all heard that plaint many times before. But finally, that long standing monetary tradition has been shattered, as Kiyosaki explains how even the smallest investor can start benefitting from the investing patterns of the richest folks. Robert Kiyosaki knows all this first hand. There was a time in the 1980s when he and his wife, Kim, were so cash poor that they were forced to sleep in their car. Today, however, the Kiyosakis are multi-millionaires, and are considered highly sophisticated investors. Based upon the four tenets of ''Rich Dad, Poor Dad'' the ''Investing Guide'' explains the nuts-and-bolts approach to understanding the real earning power of money, and how you can start cashing today. Along the way, Kiyosaki explains how he's invested his monies as his own wealth has grown over the years.

PISTIS Christian Bookshop: SILENT TEACHING:

SILENT TEACHING:


I’d rather see one sermon a week, than to hear one a day;
I’d rather one to walk with me than merely show me the way;
The eye’s a better student, and more willing than the ear;
Fine counsel is confusing, but example’s always clear.

Best of all the preachers are those who lived their creeds;
For to see good put into action, that is what everybody needs.
I soon can learn to do it, if you’ll let me see it done;
I can see your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.

The lectures you deliver may be very fine and true,
But I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do.
For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give,
But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live!
Author Unknown.

“Much wisdom often goes with fewer words.” – Sophocles.

“When you judge others, you do not define them, you define yourself.” – Earl Nightingale.

“It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how others stumble or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, whose faces are marred by dust and sweat and blood.”
– Theodore Roosevelt.

CROSSING BRIDGES:

The current bridge you are crossing doesn’t need to be crossed. At least not now and perhaps not ever. Don’t prepare, train or plan for it.

Cross that bridge when you get to it. You are currently worrying about something that will never happen. Would you pay interest on money that you never borrow? Then why are you sweating on a marathon that you are not even running.

Stop losing sleep over problems that do not exist yet; stop dodging objects that are not in motion, stop trying to find that which has never been lost.

“You wouldn’t pay tolls till you get to the toll booth. Likewise don’t cross the bridge till you get to its entrance.” ~Andres Lara

FOOTPRINTS:


One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the God. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life, for each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the God.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the God about it. “God, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed most, you would leave me.”

The God replied, “My son. I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”
-Author: Mary Stevenson Parker

“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.”
-Mother Teresa
