A fortune within its pages

Years ago a man living in New Jersey became the sole heir of his aunt’s estate. Her will read: ‘To my beloved Steven Marsh I bequeath my family Bible and all it contains, along with the residue of my estate.’ Well, when the few hundred dollars she’d left him was used up his only income was a small pension, and for more than thirty years he lived in near poverty. Then one day he cleaned out his attic and in a trunk he found the old family Bible he’d inherited. Opening it, he was amazed to find banknotes scattered throughout its pages amounting to thousands of dollars – an amount that thirty years earlier would have provided a substantial income.
But, like so many of us, he’d never valued that Bible, and never opened it to discover the riches that lay within its pages.
