It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.
A friend was once asked to ‘babysit’ a show dog.
This dog was so valuable to its owner that a special type of food was required — along with various vitamins and supplements — for every meal.
The dog could only drink the purest of water, needed to eat on schedule, and required a vigourous exercise routine daily.
Speaking of the experience afterwards, the dazed dog-sitter told me the strangest part was when the owner returned. The two met at a McDonald’s to debrief.
“It was surreal,” he confided, “knowing how he fed his dog, but watching him chug a soft drink and eat a Big Mac.”
Real wealth is available to everyone, but not everyone cares
We work every day to keep the bills paid and money in the bank.
We rarely miss a meal and most of us take on way more calories than we need.
We dread going to the gym and working up a sweat.
We WANT to be healthy, but we chug the Coke and eat the breadsticks anyway. Are we mad?
What is the ‘real wealth of life’?
Let’s talk about it.
