What Is Real Poverty?

Serious Poverty
It cannot be poverty just because the fridge is empty. But because the house has food yet the family cannot have a meal in peace.

It cannot be poverty just because there is no bed for every family member...But because though there are king size beds they cannot even stand each other's touch

It cannot be poverty just because they have no electricity... but because though all the lights are on, the king of darkness still rules the family.

It cannot be poverty just because there are no heaters in winter...But because though the house is well heated, the heated arguments make it hotter than hell.

It cannot be poverty just because they have no car and have to catch the bus to work
But because though they ride in a limousine they are still not going in the same direction in life.

It cannot be poverty just because they have holes in their socks and shoes
But because they have holes in their hearts and backs from all the backstabbing and strife.

A happy family cannot be called poor
A peaceful family cannot be called needy
A content family cannot be called destitute
A united family cannot be called paupers
It is the financially rich yet emotionally poor family that is destitute
It is the materially supplied yet spiritually bankrupt family that is needy
It is the socially famous yet domestically passive family that is poor
It is the politically connected yet domestically divided family that is damned.

Truth is, a united, loving, peaceful, content and joyful family may only need money but a rich yet divided, strife-ful, hateful, bitter and depressed family needs what no money can buy.

Have you kissed your spouse today?
Have you hugged your parent today?
Have you embraced your child today?
Have you served your family today?
When was the last time you prayed together as family?
When was the last time you ate peacefully together as family?
When was the last time you joked and laughed together as family?
When was the last time you encouraged each other as family?
You need the solid foundation of love at home more than marble tiles
You need the beautiful walls of peace at home more than gamma zenith coating
You need the covering of prayer over your home more than expensive ceilings and roof-tiles
You need solid relationships at home more than granite counter tops in the kitchen

You need joy in your hearts at home more than money in your pockets
You need emotional warmth at home more than under-tiling heating systems
You need gates of salvation at home more than strong iron gates to keep
thieves out
You need the sound of praises to God at home more than the safety of
an alarm system.

YOU NEED EACH OTHER MORE THAN THE VALUELESS GIFTS YOU
KEEP BUYING!
