How Rich Are We?

One day a father and his rich family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose to show him how poor people can be.

They spent a day and a night on the farm of a very poor family. When they got back from their trip, the father asked his son, \”How was the trip?\”

\”Very good Dad!\”

\”Did you see how poor people can be?\” the father asked.

\”Yeah!\”

\”And what did you learn?\”

The son answered, \”I saw that we have a dog at home, and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden; they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden; they have the stars.

The incident took place back in 1887 in a small neighborhood grocery store when a middle-aged gentleman, Emanuel Nenger, gave the assistant a $20 note to pay for the turnip greens he was purchasing. When the assistant placed the note in the cash drawer she noticed that some of the ink from the $20 came off on her hands which were wet from wrapping the turnip greens.

She\’d known Mr. Nenger for years and was shocked. She pondered, \”Is this man giving me a counterfeit $20 note?\” She dismissed the thought immediately and gave him his change...

God is like COKE — He\’s the real thing.
