Two men went “fishing”. They worked hard and were richly blessed. One of the two shared some of his wealth, helping to uplift and pave the way to success in lives of the young and needy. One taught all of us valuable lessons in selflessness and hope. The other, he exercised his right. He picked up a flashy expensive, and fast depreciating toy. Within minutes, there was a crash and his priced toy got massively mangled and lost value instantly.
On the other hand some of the recipients of the benevolence of the considerate guy left college without debts and went on to help others in like manner eschewing selfishness and promoting selfless living.
If you keep up with the news, you know who they are. This is a true story, without naming names. Who are they? Your comment, please!
No one should envy those who are rich, especially if they have earned their wealth. No one Should!
It is great to be rich. It is not the great wealth that you have amassed that matters, but what you do with it! You have a right to do whatever you want with your wealth.
The question is, “Do you consider your wealth something you can thank God for and maybe consider a little bit of your “overflow” to help society to ameliorate less suffering or do you feel you should keep the whole “shabbang” and spend as selfishly as you “darn well please”, or do you share a little of it with others! Think about it! If you have remained in the true, myself, and I selfish camp, consider decamping now.
Your answer to this personal question will speak to who you really are: – selfish and greedy, or caring and considerate and responsible to yourself, others and country.” Think it through!
