August 29, 2014

A woman came out of her house and saw three 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 in 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 


"Go tell them I am in 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 as 

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 daughterinlaw was listening from the other corner of the 

house. She jumped in with her own suggestion : "Would it not be 

better to invite Love? 

"Let us heed/follow our daughterinlaw' s advice," said the 

husband to his wife !

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

The woman went out and asked the three 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 two 

also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and 

Succes "I only invited Love ; Why are you coming in?"Our home will then be filled with love ." 

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."
