Ten Million Dollars

Ten Million Dollars
Spiritual Story by Unknown

A reporter was attempting to get a human interest story out of a very, very old man in a government-run home for the aged.

"Grandpa," said the young reporter, "how would you feel if you suddenly got a letter telling you that a distant relative had left you ten million dollars?"

"Son," said the old man slowly, "I would still be ninety-five years old, wouldn't I?"

Nothing can change the facts of life: Once we are born, we are subjected to growth, old age, sicknesses and eventually death. Reflecting on this, wouldn't we be spurred to live a worthy life of righteousness, virtues, service to others, training the mind to be peaceful and happy, a spiritual mind the rises above worldly suffering?
