Wealth unaware

Something to ponder:

Once upon a time there was a man who owned property under which millions of gallons of oil existed, but he was unaware of it and went about his life struggling to survive. One day an exploratory company convinced him to lease the land and allow drilling on it. Within a short time the well struck oil and became a top producer. Instantly the man became a multi-millionaire.

What if no one had come along and convinced him to take a risk on their drilling lease?


What if he had taken the time to learn about oil deposits, invested in equipment and discovered and marketed the oil himself?

Within each of us there exists an intangible untapped substance more valuable than oil. Yes, I believe there is something special in you, in each of us. Why else would our Creator make no two alike?

We go about life programmed by the world to survive from one paycheck to the next, but there is so much more available to us. Wealth means different things to different people. Whatever it means to you it is within your reach. Take time to learn about things that interest you, discover your talent, advance your skill, be authentic.

The world tells us we can’t.
God tells us we can do all things.

Philippians 4:13 KJV
