Dear Lord,

I have been re-reading the record of the Rich Young Ruler and his obviously wrong choice. But it has set me to thinking.

No matter how much wealth he had, he could not --

ride in a car,

have any surgery,

turn on a light,

buy penicillin,

hear a pipe organ,

watch TV,

wash dishes in running water,

type a letter,

mow a lawn,

fly in an airplane,

sleep on an innerspring mattress,

or talk on the phone.

If he was rich, then what am I?
