Charles Spurgeon told a story. He said he was visiting an elderly woman in the almshouse. His attention was drawn to a framed document on the wall of her room, and he asked her about it. She said that years before, she had cared for an aged gentleman, and before he had died, he had written out a little note of appreciation to her followed by his signature. He had shortly afterwards died.
After much persuasion Spurgeon was allowed to borrow the paper. When he took it to the bank, they exclaimed, “We’ve been wondering to whom the old gentleman left his money.”
She was a wealthy woman, but she had been living like a beggar.
Many people are unaware of the wealth they have in Jesus Christ.
