Poor

This showed up on my Facebook feed today, anonymously, of course…

Poor doesn’t mean dirty. Poor doesn’t mean stupid. Poor doesn’t mean depressed.”

By many people’s standards, Cody and I are poor. By many others’, we are rich beyond our wildest dreams. Poverty is a relative concept. These words made me think about stewardship, about doing the best we can with what we’ve got. When I encounter others, my goal is to prevent them from making an immediate judgement about our financial situation based upon their first impression of me. My countenance, attitude, intelligence, and demeanor should not be influenced by the number of digits in my savings account.
