Equally Rich

Morning Masterpiece

10 PM . . . turning pages in a book while sunshine and rain showers trade places high up among the snowcaps in the Land of the Midnight Sun . . . Life Is Good!

Came across an excerpt about John Pierpont Morgan, renown financier and multimillionaire, who died in 1913, and discovered we’re joint heirs, and equally rich! 

Now, before you wonder if I’m actually of the Morgan lineage; hit the MegaMillion years ago and have been living an incognito, middle class lifestyle; or have just plain taken leave of my senses(your most likely choice), allow me to clarify.

J.P.’s Last Will and Testament contained 37 articles and over 10,000 words detailing the distribution of his extensive wealth. However, it’s the final 72 words of his Last Will and Testament that testify to his understanding and assurance of where his true wealth lie . . . not in the fortunes and extensive art collection he had astutely accumulated . . . but in the priceless gift ensuring his soul’s eternal destination . . . and mine . . . and yours.

J.P. wrote:

“I commit my soul into the hands of my Savior, in full confidence that, having redeemed and washed it in His most precious blood, He will present it faultless before my heavenly Father; and I entreat my children to maintain and defend, at all hazard and at any cost of personal sacrifice, the blessed doctrine of the complete atonement for sin through the blood of Jesus Christ, once offered, and through that alone.”
