One day, a father took his son on a trip to show poor people lived. They spent a few days in a farm with a poor family. On their return, the father asked the son. How was the trip? It was great dad, replied the son. Did you see how poor the people live, asked the father. Oh yeah, said the son.
So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip? The son said: We have one dog, they have four. We have a pool in the middle of our garden, they have a creek that has no end. We have lantern in our garden, they have the stars. Our patio reaches our front yard, they have the horizon. We have a small piece of land, they have fields that go beyond sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, they grow theirs. We have walls to protect us, they have their friends to protect them.
The father was speechless…
Then the son added… Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are!!
