Whom should you invite in your home?

A woman saw 3 saints in front of her house. She did not know any of them.

She said – 
“Kindly come inside and have food.”

The saints replied – "Is your husband inside the house?”

Woman – “No, he has gone out.”

Saints – “Will step into the house only when he is there.”

In the evening when the woman's husband returns home, she tells him about the saints.

Husband – “Go and tell them I am home, and invite them inside the house.”

She went out and called the saints inside the house.

The saints now said – “We all don't go inside anyone's house together.”

“But why?” – the woman asked.

One of the saints replied – “My name is wealth.”

Then he pointed to the other saints and said –
“These two saints' names are 'prosperity' and 'love'.

Only one of us can come inside your house!

You go in, discuss with your family and decide which saint you want to invite.”

The woman went inside and told her husband all about this.

He was excited.

He said – “If this is the matter, let us invite wealth! Our house will then be filled with happiness.”

Wife – “I feel we should invite prosperity.”

Their daughter was in the next room. She was listening to the discussions. She came outside and said – 
“I feel we should invite love. Nothing is more important.”

“You are right, we should invite love only.” – her parents agreed.

The woman went out and asked the saints – 
“Who is love? Please come inside the house.”

Love started walking towards the house!

The other two saints started following love.

The surprised woman asked the saints – 
“I only invited love. Why are you two also coming inside the house?”

One of the saints replied – “If you had invited prosperity or wealth, only that saint would have entered your house.

But you have invited love!

Love never walks alone.

Whereever there's love, there's prosperity and wealth. They all go hand in hand."

Read this story once, twice, thrice ...

If you like it, stay with love.

Spread love, give love and take love.

As love is the only secret to success!!!
