Emotional Wealth

For a large part of my life I have had the impression that to be wealthy was to be rich. Would I actually be wealthy if I was rich?   

What actually is wealth? Is it owning the Mona Lisa? Is it living in the Vatican? Is it owning Trump Tower? Is it driving a gold plated Rolls Royce?   

. True wealth is not eating at Macdonalds. True wealth is not dinning on KFC.  True wealth is not owning cars, houses, companies, etc True wealth is not something you can buy. 
True wealth is a state of being. This state of being is so precious that the richest man in the world cannot buy it.   Complete happiness, peace, and satisfaction is more precious than all the money in existence.  

You can be living on the street and be more wealthy than the highest paid ceo. 
You can be living in prison and be more wealthy than the ruler of the country.
You can be living in relative destitution in the third world and be happier than a Hollywood Hunk.
You can be living in the back of a police station and be more happy than the policeman.  

If unlimited money cannot buy true wealth then true wealth is of more value than unlimited money.
It is harder to be happy than it is to be rich. 

Definition of wealth: Complete happiness, peace and satisfaction.


Proverbs 13:7
One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing; another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
