Question of the Week:

 

Is our family rich?

 

(From my 7 year old daughter)

 

Answer:

Our family is extremely rich. I'll tell you why.

 

If someone came to me and said, "I'll give you ten thousand dollars to buy your daughter," what do you think I would say?

 

Would I sell one of my children for ten thousand dollars? No way!

 

So what if they offered a hundred thousand?

 

I wouldn't do it, right?

 

And if they offered a million? Ten million? A billion dollars to buy my daughter?

 

I wouldn't even need to think it over. I would not sell you for all the money in the world.

 

A child is more precious than anything. And thank G-d, our family has a few. Each one of you makes our family richer than anyone with a lot of money.

 

So yes we are very rich. Some people think kids are expensive. I think they are our wealth.

 

Good Shabbos,

Rabbi Moss
