A rich landowner named Carl often rode around his vast estate so he could congratulate himself on his great wealth.
One day while riding around his estate on his favorite horse, he saw Hans, an old tenant farmer.
Hans was sitting under a tree when Carl rode by. Hans said, "I was just thanking God for my food."
Carl protested, "If that is all I had to eat, I wouldn't feel like giving thanks."
Hans replied, "God has given me everything I need, and I am thankful for
The old farmer added, "It is strange you should come by today because I had a dream last night.
In my dream a voice told me, 'The richest man in the valley will die tonight.'
I don't know what it means, but I thought I ought to tell you."
Carl snorted, "Dreams are nonsense," and galloped away, but he could not forget Hans' words:
"The richest man in the valley will die tonight."
He was obviously the richest man in the valley, so he invited his doctor to his house that evening.
Carl told the doctor what Hans had said.
After a thorough examination, the doctor told the wealthy landowner, "Carl, you are as strong and healthy as a horse.
There is no way you are going to die tonight."
Nevertheless, for assurance, the doctor stayed with Carl, and they played cards through the night.
The doctor left the next morning and Carl apologized for becoming so upset over the old man's dream.
At about nine o'clock, a messenger arrived at
Carl's door. "What is it?" Carl demanded.
The messenger explained ....
"It's about old Hans. He died last night in his sleep."
The question my friend
is simple, where do your riches
lie? In Heaven or worldly
goods? If your riches do not await
you in Heaven, you need to find a New
Testament Bible Believing Church, preferably a
Independent Baptist or Southern Baptist. Everything here
on earth is wood, hay and stubble ! ! !
to the words carefully, I'm Rich, are
See you in church ! ! !
