Let me share another short story from www.wattpad.com.

A poor man came home one night to find four strangers sitting outside his home.

"You must be travellers, please come in and have something to eat." he said to them politely.

"Is your wife home?" they asked.

"No" he replied, "She went in town with my daughter and son."

"Then we cannot come in till they arrive" the strangers answered simply.

The man was confused but he nonetheless went inside. Evening came and his wife and children returned from town, he told them what happened.

"Tell them we've arrived and invite them in" the wife said. The son went out and invited the four strangers in.

"We do not go to a house together" they replied.

"Why is that?" the son asked, curious.

One of the strangers stood up and explained, "Because his name is WEALTH" he said pointing to one of his friends and then the other two, "and their names are SUCCESS and HAPPINESS, and I am LOVE." Then he added, "now go back and decide which one of us you want in your home."

The boy went in and told his mom and dad. "How nice, let's invite SUCCESS so he may bring success in our lives" the dad said.

The mother disagreed, "Let's invite WEALTH in."

The daughter voiced her own opinion, "Why not invite HAPPINESS in?"

The son stood in the middle of the house, then he jumped in with his own suggestion. "Wouldn't be better to invite LOVE?" he said quietly.

"Let us listen to our son and invite LOVE to our home" the father said and told his son to invite love in.

The son once again went out "Which one of you is LOVE? Come with me" he said kindly.

LOVE got up and started walking towards the house, the other three also followed behind. The boy was surprised and asked, "I thought you said only one of you can come in?"

LOVE smiled and replied "If you had invited WEALTH, SUCCESS or HAPPINESS the other three of us would have stayed out. But since you invited LOVE in, we all go. For wherever there is LOVE, there is also WEALTH, SUCCESS, and HAPPINESS.
