Nice story!!!!!.....




A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked
"No", she replied. "He's out
Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The woman went out and invited the men in"

"We do not go into a House together," they replied

Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success

Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife.

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!!!!!!"

It is a good allegory which tell us wherever there is love there is wealth and success, but the wealth here means the mental wealth not material wealth. Actually I find too many people are pursuing the wealth and success, going for their dream, meanwhile they are also losing the love, having less time to stay with their parents, wives, childen, friends. So sometimes enjoying love is not compatible with getting wealth, do you agree?

Afroset, i gree with ur point of view….mental wealth is important than material one …if u ve the material wealth and dosen't have the mental then u ll have nothing….i think so..

I feel we have forgotten to love, our way of life tells that we need success & wealth more than love, that's why there is every where a turmoil. We should just realise that love is the key of life, we can live without success & wealth sometimes but we can't live without love.

Good story

Nice one osesame. And a baby would come into their house as the next best thing they’d get in their life. Y’know a baby is the perfect form of a SUCCESS and a WEALTH in a family.=)
