A woman came out of the house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her backyard. She did not recognize them and said: I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come inside and have something to eat. They asked him: Is the man of the house inside? The woman answered: No, he is not at home, he has been out for a while. They continued saying: Then we cannot enter. In the evening, when the husband came home, the wife told him what had happened.
Upon hearing his wife’s words, the husband said to her: Then go and tell them that I am at home and invite them inside. And the woman did so, went out and invited them. They again refused, reasoning: We do not enter a house all together. And why do you do that, asked the woman. One of the older men explained: His name is Wealth, he said, pointing to one of his friends, he is Success and I am Love. Then he added: Now go and discuss with your husband which of us you want to enter your house.
The woman went inside and told her husband what the three old men had told her. The husband was filled with joy and said: How good, since it is so, to invite the Wealth. Let him come in and fill our house with wealth. The woman did not agree and said: Dear, why don’t we invite Success? Their daughter was listening from the corner of the house. She immediately joined the conversation by suggesting: Wouldn’t it be better to invite Love? That way our house would be filled with love.
We listen to the girl’s advice, the husband told the wife. Go and invite Love to be our guest. The wife agreed with the other family members and invited love to enter the house. Love stood up and started walking towards the house. The other two got up and followed him. Surprised, the woman asked Wealth and Success: I invited Love, why are you coming too? The three men answered him in unison: If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed outside, but since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go together with him, the three of us inseparable.
Lesson: Dear readers of my page, do not forget that the most important thing for a family is neither success, nor wealth, nor fame, nor anything else but love. In an environment where there is love, surely there is respect, support, protection and all these make it possible for success to come and, as a result, wealth. In a family where he is absent love, most likely all that we mentioned above will be missing. It is futile and we would be lying to ourselves if we thought that we would achieve success and wealth in our lives if we do not forgive and receive love, support and courage from the people we hold close to our hearts.
Love is the key to success and the foundation for a healthy and happy life. Love is food for the soul and relief for the mind. A man surrounded with this feeling, has no other force to hinder him in his journey. I really hope you enjoyed this story and it was worth your time. I have no choice but to thank you and express my gratitude to all of you who follow me. I wish you only the best in your families, lots of love and don’t forget our beautiful advice: mind in place friends, the rest will all be arranged.
