Dose of Reality

Poor and Rich

“For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.” Matthew 26:11

commentary read on topic: (my highlights)

Poverty is not new. Jehovah told ancient Israel that there would never cease to be poor ones in the land. (Deut. 15:11) Centuries later, Jesus acknowledged: “You always have the poor with you.” (Matt. 26:11) Did Jesus mean that there would always be poor people on the earth? No, he meant that there would be poor people as long as this corrupt system of things lasts. Therefore, how heartening it is to understand that Jesus’ miracles serve as portents of better times ahead under Kingdom rule when all will have plenty to eat and be satisfied! [excerpted: Christ the Power of God w ’15]

Which is worse/(more/less) suffering? materially rich yet spiritually poor? or spiritually rich yet materially poor?

spiritually poor and materially poor? Materially rich and spiritually rich?

my choices through the years manifest as the repeated pattern of choosing:  spiritual riches over material ones…which paradoxically has led me to a place of balance…not too rich not too poor…

is “just right”…Goldilocks contentment??;)  meaning..(having what you need when you need it—to accomplish what you need to do!🙂

Guess who? Got Hot Coco… with mini marshmellows!!:)…”mellow” out:), ya, i know, it’s technically spelled “marshmallow”… IDK IF? it’s a “New England” (Somerville, Massachusetts) thing (accent) or a kid thing, but have been saying “marshMELLOWS” my whole life (in and out of Massachusetts)… either way–it’s YUMMY and sweet!! to me…a favorite cold weather treat… that brings back warm, happy, childhood (and Other) memories playing in snow, etc. (Thank You Chato for my Coco!)

When You have offspring (kids/teens), it’s fun to relive/share some healthy/in moderation (healthy for body/mind) stuff with them.

Isn’t hot coco suppose to be good for you?!;) (in moderation and IF no food/lactose intolerances or Diabetes, etc.) please, do your own research…i am enJOYing mine right now…

Sip, sip… wouldn’t it be nice IF everyone experiencing cold weather today had access to some hot coco with mini marshmallows or big marshmellows…IF they wanted some?!:) Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a world where everyone’s (healthy) needs are met appropriately and at the appropriate time?!

Perhaps, when we could all share (more) and care (more) and study compassion and unselfishly live it… there would be enough of everything for everyone earth-wide!:)
