“Rich or Poor” Take your pick.
It is in our nature as human beings to want to be?
TO BE POOR IS TO BE NEGATIVE.
TO BE RICH IS TO BE POSITIVE.
If you have everything you wish and desire then you are rich. We live in a free world compared with history. Everything in this world has advanced in the last one hundred odd years compared with the rest of mankind. Technology has made us all rich in education that anything is possible in life. We should all strive for a full life. That is to improve every day of your life, Health, Wealth, Knowledge, Property etc. To be content with less is sinful.
To succeed in life is to become what you want to be. It is not normal to not desire all that is needed in life. Desire for a richer, fuller and more abundant life is praise worthy. We live for the mind, body and soul. None are more important than the other. You must make the most of life for God and humanity.

Enter lady holding very thin child,
Could you look at the babe, Doc, she seems very underweight.
Doc holds babe, My goodness, the child is desperately thin, how is it fed?
Doc. Can you lift your jumper so I can see what you’ve got.?
Doc looks, Goodness, you have nothing there to feed the child!
Lady responds. ‘I’m the child’s aunt!!!
One day while he was at the track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.
Lo and behold, that horse — a very long shot — won the race.
Before the following race, the Priest blessed yet another horse. Mitch made a beeline for the window, and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the race.
Mitch collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest would bless for the 6th race. The priest showed, blessed a horse, Mitch bet a large amount of money on it, and it won!
True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears, and hooves of one of the horses.
Mitch bet every cent he had, including his life savings and the deed to his house. Mitch then watched the horse come in dead last. He was dumbfounded.
He made his way to the track, and when he found the priest, he demanded, “What happened, Father? All day long you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now, thanks to you, I’ve lost all my savings!”
The priest nodded wisely and said, “That’s the problem with Protestants — you can’t tell the difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites!
Put Yourself on the Line and be the Master of Your own Time.
for your time, Tom Short.

I choose to be rich – mind, soul, relationships, business, and wallet! Thanks for the reminder, Tom.
