True RichesPaolo and the kids were driving through one of the exclusive subdivisions in Makati yesterday. Janina commented that a lot of rich people probably live in those big houses.

To this, Ryan said “I may not be rich with money but I am rich with God’s presence.”

What a profound truth from a 7-yr old. There are a lot of wealthy people out there who don’t enjoy real peace, joy and security that can only come from the presence of God.  God’s presence offers us more than what money can buy. It is never too early to teach our kids that money is not the answer to everything. True riches is not worldy wealth. True riches are what only God can provide… our salvation, grace, faith, a relationship with our Heavenly Father.

  1. great blog:
    a reminder for all that it’s not about money, not about the material things that we can acquire in this world.

    it’s not the world that can satisfy us but rather it’s the WORD-Jesus that will complete us..His presence in our life.

    thanks for sharing.

  2. Great kid!I know Ryan will be a great man one day;)) I agree to his thought that true riches can only be found in in the book of Psalms says “The Lord is my sheperd, i shall not be in want”. God aLone tlga can we find full satisfation in life;))
