R is for rich or riches…

21 Apr

A lot of people assume that being rich only means that your bank account is full. Technically, I guess that’s right. But being rich, to me, extends well beyond the number of zeros in a bank account. Peace is a wonderful thing and when you own peace, that’s being rich. Being happy and having unconditional love in your life is living a rich full life.

People can not be replaced like things can. Have you ever seen people who are barely making it yet they have a smile on their face? That’s because they have everything else they need. I used to never understand that when I was growing up. Now I do. Being rich doesn’t mean you can’t be poor in spirit. We’ve all seen those people before.

Peace, happiness, and love are riches that trump a full bank account without them any day… are you rich?

    I couldn’t agree more. I have to be reminded constantly of the small things around me that I do have, and appreciate them.

    Lovely post. Rich is little to do with money and lots to do with love and happiness. Am I rich, yes in many ways. Could I do with a bit more love, maybe..

    Hi Good to be here,
    R is for Rich
    Good selection and
    you presented it nicely
    Yes, nothing on this earth
    will make a person rich
    unless and until he is
    having Christ in him
    Yes the greatest richness
    one can find only in Christ Jesus
    Yes, one who is in Him is rich
    all other richness of this world
    will go away, and Christ and His
    Mercy alone will stay eternal

    keep blogging
    Good Wishes
    Keep in touch
    I am
