A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She went and asked them: "Gentlemen, I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."
"Is the man of the house home?", asked the three old men.
"No", He's out for his work, and he'd be home late this evening." she replied.
"Then we cannot come in", says the three old men.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him about what had happened.
"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!" said the husband.
The woman went out and invited the men in"
"We couldn't go into a House together," they replied.
One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love."... then added, "Now lady, go in and discuss with your husband which of us you want in your home."
The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed.
"How nice!!", he said.
"Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"
The wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success first?"
Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better if we have to invite Love first Dad, Mom? Our home will then be filled with love!"
"Let us heed our daughter's advice," said the husband to his wife.
"Go my dearest and invite Love to be our guest."
The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."
Love got up and started walking in to the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him.
Surprised and confused the lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"
The old men replied together: "Lady listen, If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever Love is, Wealth and Success follows with him.
