Rich Definition: possessing material wealth having an abundant supply of desirable qualities or substances of great worth or quality define:rich - Google Search The term rich is often applied these days to people of great material wealth, some see it as a sign of evil or sign that the person gained that wealth upon the suffering of others. I submit that the term "rich" has a meaning depending on how you define it. Take for example, my own grandfather, who with little education and even less material wealth was the "richest" man I have ever met. You know why?, because of his devotion to his family and friends, he was constantly surrounded by those that loved him and cared for him making him as rich as any person can ever be. Many use the term to define others, as a bad term, but we all have people in our family like my grandfather at one time or the other or know of one. Material wealth could not buy what these people have and had, it was purchased through their own ability to repect and love those around them, but in the end it was earned and not given. I have said this many times on this board but,when looking to your neighbor for their wealth to enhance your own to make you rich is to eventually short change yourself , because one cannot purchase richness, they need to earn it , not matter how they define the term.
