Secrets of the Wealthy

Giving and sharing Wealth – great for your Health
When was the last time you went out of your way to do something good for someone else? When was the last time you sacrificed something you wanted in order to help someone else in need?

Here is the amazing true story of John D. Rockefeller.

He grew up on a farm many years ago, but he had tremendous ambition.

At the age of 33, he earned his first million dollars.

And at the age of 43, he controlled the biggest business in the world.

At the age of 53, he was the world's first billionaire.

But in all of his desire to gain wealth, he lost his health. His income was a million dollars a week, but his digestion was so bad, all he could eat were crackers and milk. He had crushed the helpless in his lust for money. Some people hated him so much, they hanged him in effigy. Rockefeller had no peace, no joy, and he couldn't eat or sleep.

But one day he began to realize that his money wasn't a commodity to be horded, but a gift to be shared. He started building hospitals and universities. He gave millions to mission’s projects. Because of his money, researchers were able to find the cure for Malaria, Tuberculosis, and many other dreaded diseases.
And something amazing happened.

As John D. Rockefeller began to help others, his own condition began to improve. He started eating well. He started sleeping well. And as he continued to get rid of that self-centeredness, God's streams of healing, love, and life began to flow back into him.

And at the age of 53, most people thought he'd never see another birthday. But because he changed his focus from being a taker to being a giver.

John D. Rockefeller died in peace at the age of 93.
