5/28/14 – Weekly Words of Wealth – Wonderful Poem
Arthur William Beer wrote a wonderful poem that I want to share with you that sums up a wonderful philosophy for life:
“To get he had tried,
yet his store was still meager.
To a wise man he cried,
in a voice keen and eager;
‘Pray tell me how I may successfully live?’
And the wise man replied,
‘To get you must give.’
As to giving he said,
‘What have I to give?
I’ve scarce enough bread,
and of course one must life;
But I would partake of Life’s bountiful store.’
Came the wise man’s response;
‘Then you must give more.’
The lesson he learned: to get was forgotten,
Toward mankind he turn
with a love new begotten.
As he gave of himself in unselfish living,
Then joy crowned his days,
for he grew rich in giving.”
Here’s to the richness of giving!
