One day a rich man took his son on a trip to the village. He wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They sent some time on the farm of a poor family.
The dad asked, “Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?”
The son answered, “We have one dog, they have four, we have a pool, they have a river, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy food, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have friends, we have encyclopedias, they have a Bible.”
Then as they headed home, the son said, “Thank you, Dad, for showing me how poor we are.”
