Mother Teresa is a phenomenon in the God's creation.
The poem 'LIFE' is well-known as a great quote from her wonderful sayings.
This is an attempt to understand what is LIFE and its interpretation from each line in that poem.

Here, I examine how 'Life is wealth' and how to 'keep it'.

Life is wealth, keep it.


Wealth is the quality of profuse abundance. The wealth of compassion, courage, kindness, patience and love made Mother Teresa unique and universal mother. Another great possession of this incredible woman was her unequivocal faith and unflinching devotion in the Almighty God.

When you recognize that life is costly, you will also know that life is wealth. Those who won’t care for the value of life will abandon the lives of people who suffer.

Selfishness of an individual makes them think that their own life only is valuable and so they do not care to bother about the lives of the suffering fellow citizens.

When you are compassionate and loving, you care for the people who are helpless and suffering and preserve their lives. True at heart, mind and actions Mother Teresa gave life to many dying souls by strengthening their faith in the God that they realized that they came to this life to live it fully with abundant love and affection.

*****
Every human being comes
from the hand of God,
and we all know something of God's love for us.
Whatever our religion,
we know that if we really want to love,
we must first learn to forgive before anything else.

~Mother Teresa
