Would You Turn Down a Billion Dollars?

Question of the Week:


Is our family rich?


(From my 7 year old daughter)



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
