Where there is love, there is Success and Wealth

Someone once told me the following story:
A woman went out of her home and saw
three old men with long beards sitting in
front of her garden. Since she didn’t know
them, she said, "I don’t think I know you,
but perhaps you are hungry. Please come
into my home and eat something." They
asked her, "Is the man of the house home?"
"No," she answered, "he is not here." "Then
we cannot go inside," they told her. In the
evening, when her husband returned home,
the woman told him what had happened.
He said, "Tell them that I have arrived and
invite them to come in!" The woman went
outside to invite the men in. "All three of
77 us cannot go in at once," explained the old
men. "Why?" she wanted to know. In that
moment, one of the men pointed towards the
other two and said, "His name is Wealth and
his name is Success. My name is Love. Go
inside and decide with your husband which
one of the three of us you would like to
invite in." The woman went inside her home
and repeated the story to her husband. The
man became very happy. "Fantastic! Since
that is the case, let’s invite Wealth in. Let him
come in and fill our home with abundance."
The wife did not agree. "Honey, why don’t
we invite in Success?" The couple’s daughter,
who was listening to the conversation from
the other end of the house, came running
up with an idea. "Wouldn’t it be better to
invite Love? Then our home would be filled
with Love." "Let’s listen to our daughter,"
the man told his wife. "Go invite Love to be
our guest." The woman went outside and
asked the three men, "Which one of you is
Love? We wish for him to be our guest."
Love stood up and started to walk towards
the house. The other two old men stood up
78and followed him. Surprised, the woman
asked them, "I only invited in Love. Why are
you also coming?" The old men responded
in unison, "If you had invited in Wealth or
Success, the other two would have stayed
outside. But you invited Love, and wherever
Love goes, we go." Where there is love, there
is also wealth and success
