There are many way to walk the path of this life. We can seek riches, and strive to find ways to make money, not matter the obstacles are, or we can share our wealth with the less fortunate.
James from the Bible teaches to not show favoritism to the wealthy:
- It’s inconsistent with Christ’s teachings.
- It results from evil thoughts.
- It insults people made in God’s image.
- It’s a by-product of selfish motives.
- It shows a lack of mercy to those less fortunate.
- It’s hypocritical.
- It’s a sin.
We often treat well dressed, impressive-looking people better then someone who looks shabby. We do this because we could rather identify with successful people than with apparent failures.
Why is it wrong to judge a person by his or her economic status?
Wealth may indicate intelligence, wise decisions, and hard work. On the other hand, it may mean only that a person had the good fortune of being born into a wealthy family. It could even be the sign of greed, dishonesty, and selfishness.
Why do some people go this route of ignoring the poor?
- Poverty makes us feel uncomfortable. We don’t want to face our responsibilities to those who have less than we do.
- We want to be wealthy too, and we hope to sue the rich person as a means to that end.
- We want the rich person to join our church and help support it financially.
All of these motives are selfish.
God doesn’t promise us earthly rewards or riches; in fact Christ call us to be ready to suffer for Him and give up everything in order to hold on to eternal life. besides, we will have untold riches in eternity if we are faithful in our present life.
God loves the poor. That doesn’t mean the the rich will automatically go to hell and the poor to heaven. Poor people are more aware of their powerlessness. This helps them to be more aware of their need to seek salvation as the means to find their wealth in heaven.
We need to love one another, no matter what the wealth level is for each person.
You are not alone.
You are not forsaken.
You are not unloved.
Above all… never, ever, give up!
