St. James said, “My brothers and sisters, show no partiality…” “Did not God choose those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom that he promised to those who love him?” Jas 2:1-9
Survival in poverty demands humility in life. Survival in wealth demands pride and sometimes cutthroat judgment of others. Yet not all the poor are sinless and rich in faith. And not all the wealthy are arrogant and greedy. The point is, not to judge either, but to be equally kind and compassionate. The rich can use our prayers, while we poor can use theirs!
