16-Three Old Men
A woman came out of her house and saw three old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. So she said, "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house home?" they asked.
The woman went out and invited the men in.
The woman went in and told her husband what those men said to her.
Their little daughter was listening from the corner of the room. She jumped in
with her own suggestion. "Wouldn't it be better to invite Love? Our home
will then be filled with love!"
Love got up and started walking toward the house. Then the other two also got up and followed him. Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success, "I only invited in Love, as You directed. But then why are you all coming in?"
The other two old men replied together, "If you had invited only Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out. However, since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him, because wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!"
