Be Not Afraid of Poverty

a17b2-hip-replacement-recall-briberyI have been poor and I have been wealthy. In both situations, I have enjoyed  happiness and I have endured suffering. I admit that it’s a lot more fun to move up the ladder than it is to either fall or be pushed down it. But, at the end of the day, the state of your bank account doesn’t remotely dictate your quality of life – you do.

“Do not be afraid, my son, because we have become poor.

You have great wealth if you fear God and

flee from every sin and do what is good in the sight of the Lord your God.” Tobit 4:21
