Three Old Men

A woman saw 3 old men outside her home. They looked hungry so she invited them to eat. They said: ‘We do not go into a house together.’ ‘Why?’ she asked. One of the old men said: ‘His name is Wealth,’ he said pointing to one man, and pointing to another said, ‘He is Success, and I am Fear of God. Decide which one you want in your home.’

The husband said Wealth, while the wife said Success. The daughter-in-law said Fear of God. They agreed and the woman invited him. Fear of God got up and walked toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed. Surprised, the lady asked: ‘I only invited Fear of God, why are you coming in?’

The old men replied: ‘If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other 2 of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Fear of God, wherever he goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Fear of God, there is also Wealth and Success!’
