In My Word, I said that “you will always have the poor among you,” and this has remained a steadfast truth through the ages. There are always those who are less fortunate than others, some would say, but I would prefer to say that there is always opportunity among you to give.
Your hard work and life choices should focus on giving of yourself, financially. A man’s finances are close to his heart, because it is a tangible substance, representative of his hard work.
Accomplishments come in time, but money is a reward that you can see and touch, bringing satisfaction of a job well done. Share this with others, those in need, and you will realize an even greater satisfaction, that no money can buy; a satisfaction that only the poor can give. Allow the poor to give to you in this way–an opportunity to be satisfied, and I will see to it that you never lack for any good thing.
Satisfaction guaranteed, and your money back!
