King Solomon said, “Gold, silver, and rubies are nice, but we treasure far above those knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.”
If you can understand the secret of greed then you have attained one of the secrets of prosperity.
There is an old Babylonian tale about a fabulously rich king, who one day received a strange visitor into his court. The man was not dressed like a man of court, but like a beggar on the street, but he neither was nor starved like the rest of them out there. The king asked what he wanted. He told the king to go to his treasure room. There he said, you will find it all gone. "Are you mad," said the king laughing.
The king knew his treasure was guarded day and night by loyal men. Besides, the room was a huge former dungeon under lock and key. It held countless jewelled treasures’ of many former kingdoms conquered by the king in his younger days. From east to the Euphrates and west towards the great Niger the treasure he had stored all the fruits of war into this great cathedral of stone, it would take many men several days to empty the room completely, he thought. No one could get inside without blood being spilt, without help. "Someone’s head was going to roll for this," he roared.
The king ordered his guards to check the room. The men who had been guarding the room, unlocking were surprised, and the room was dark with dust, but no shiny gold. No one wanted to inform the king, in case it was their head that rolled of the block.
"Don’t let that man leave ….I'll have your head." The strange man was led by the King towards the treasure room. The king demanded to know where the treasure had gone. "What is your name? How did you do this?" The stranger replied, “Just remember your treasure in this life has no value in the next."
"What is your name?" The king, demanded. The man replied, “They call me, the messenger.” he said. “I come and go, when my father demands it."
He turned and walked away as if he was never there.
The king died within a few months. To this day the greatest treasure of Babylon has never been found. The legend also told that the slaves of Babylon were freed soon after this meeting, but before the king died. Many today, still believe that this was the price a king paid to live a few extra months.
