Father Knows Best

2024, Henery X

“Dad. When I grow up, I want to be wealthy,” Jeffery Smith said proudly.

“That’s awesome, Jeffery. But being wealthy comes with a great responsibility,” Stevie Smith said.

“What do you mean?”

“You must never allow want to overshadow need. See, son. Sizable sums of money make some people want to live a life they really don’t need to. So, they create conditions they eventually grow to regret.”


“I’ve made some poor decisions in my life and they cost me, but the wisdom I gained will ensure you won’t suffer the same or similar outcomes.”

“I love you, Dad.”

What’s in a word? A deeper meaning.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.
