How Rich Are You?

Have you ever thought you just didn't have any money?

It is easy to do because we tend to compare ourselves with those who have more than we do. We are always thinking about upward mobility. We hardly ever think about those who are much less fortunate than us.

When you get a minute take this quick test to see how rich you are
when you compare yourself with the population of the world at large. And then think about giving to the Solis Foundation this next year, to help those less fortunate.

It was John Haughey the Jesuit theologian who said, "We read the gospel as if we had no money and we spend our money as if we know nothing of the gospel." Ouch!

This thought is well-timed, J.R. Right after Christmas - a good time for a reality check re: materialism.
