Who is Rich?

  “Who is rich? Those who are happy with their portion” ~Babylonian Talmud,
Shabbat 32a

Being truly joyful or happy with one’s lot in life is wise advice. It is a wonderful way to live, but how easy is it to adopt this attitude? How many of us are truly satisfied with our portion? How do we recognize our own good fortune? All around us advertisers bombard us with goods and services we “need”. Our world is characterized by material acquisitions and to paraphrase a popular game show, “who wouldn’t want to be a millionaire”?

This obsession with our “needs” is not just a contemporary concern. Solomon Ibn Gabirol, an 11th century Spanish poet-philosopher taught, “Who seeks more than needs, hinders himself from enjoying what he has. Seek what you need and give up what you need
  not. For in giving up what you don’t need, you’ll learn what you really need.”

Being content with one’s portion is an age-old Jewish concern. In the book of Proverbs we read, “A joyful heart makes a cheerful face; a sad heart makes a despondent mood. All the days of a poor person are wretched, but contentment is a feast without end.” ~Proverbs 15:13, 15.
