A Beautiful Parable

A beautiful Parable

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She didn't recognized them. She Said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungary. 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" he replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happend.
"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," pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another, "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 over joyed. "How nice" he said. "Since that is the case let us invite 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 would be filled with LOVE!"

"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to the wife.
"Go out and invite LOVE to be our guest"
The woman went out and ask the 3 old men, "Which one of you is LOVE? PLease come in and be our guest".
LOVE got up and started walking towards the house. The other two got up and started to follow him. Surprise, 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 have stayed out, but since you invited love, wherever he goes, we go with him.
Wherever there is Love there is Wealth and Success!!!!

*Where there is Pain, I wish you Peace and Mercy.
*Where there is self doubting, I wish you Renewed Self Confidence in your ability to work through it.
*Where there is Tiredness, or Exhaustion, I wish you Understanding, Patience and Renewed Strength.
*Where there is Fear, I wish you Love and Courage!
