  Four Wives   




Make sure you take the time to fully read this! It's something to think about.......
Once upon a time there was a rich King who had four wives.
He loved the 4th  wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of  delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.
He also loved the 3rd wife  very much and was always showing her off to neighboring kingdoms. However, he  feared that one day she would leave him for another.
He also loved his  2nd wife. She was his confident and was always kind, considerate and patient with  him. Whenever the King faced a problem, he could confide in her, and she would  help him get through the difficult times.
The King's 1st wife was a very  loyal partner and had made great contributions in maintaining his wealth and  kingdom. However, he did not love the first wife. Although she loved him deeply,  he hardly took notice of her!
One day, the King fell ill and he knew his  time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and wondered, "I now have four  wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone."
Thus, he asked the 4th  wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and  showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me  company?"
"No way!", replied the 4th wife, and she walked away without  another word..
Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.
The  sad King then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm  dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"
"No!", replied the 3rd  wife. "Life is too good! When you die, I'm going to remarry!" His heart sank and  turned cold.
He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for  help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and  keep me company?"
"I'm sorry, I can't help you out this time!", replied  the 2nd wife. "At the very most, I can only walk with you to your grave." Her  answer struck him like a bolt of lightning, and the King was  devastated.
Then a voice called out: "I'll go with you. I'll follow you  no matter where you go." The King looked up, and there was his first wife. She was very skinny as she suffered from malnutrition and neglect. Greatly grieved,  the King said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the  chance!"
In truth, we all have the 4 wives in our lives:
Our  4th wife is our body. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making  it look good, it will leave us when we die.
Our 3rd wife is our  possessions, status and wealth.
When we die, it will all go to  others.
Our 2nd wife is our family and friends. No matter how much  they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the  grave.
And our 1st wife is our Soul Often neglected in pursuit of  wealth, power and pleasures of the world. However, our Soul is the only thing  that will follow us wherever we go.
Cultivate, strengthen and cherish it  now, for it is the only part of us that will follow us to the throne of God and  continue with us throughout Eternity.
Thought for the day: Remember,  when the world pushes you to your knees, you're in the perfect position to  pray.
