I have not yet found the origin of the following. It is a beautiful statement.
I AM YOUR POLICY
You and I have similar purposes in this world.
It is your job to provide food, clothing, shelter, schooling, medicine, and other things for your loved ones. You do this while I lie in your strong box.
I have faith and trust in you. Out of your earnings will come the cost of my upkeep. At times, I may appear to be worthless to you – but some day (and who knows WHEN), you and I will change places.
When you are laid to rest, I will come alive and do your job. I will provide the food, clothing, shelter, schooling, medicine, and other things your family will continue to need – just as you are doing now.
When your work and toil are done, mine will begin. Through me, your hands will carry on.
Whenever you feel the price you are paying for my upkeep is burdensome, remember that I will do more for you and your family than you ever can do for me.
If you do your part, I will do mine.
