The mass of the rich and the poor are differentiated by their incomes and nothing else,and the average millionaire is only the average dishwasher dressed in a new suit.
Most people are poor, not because they are lacking but is because they are wasting. They spend their money on the things they don’t need. They never see the use of the things they already own and at their disposal.
Lord I thank you for the timely provisions
Respect everybody you meet either Rich or Poor | Cute or Ugly | Locally or Internationally | Famous or Infamous.. afterall we’re all sand
The bread which you hold back belongs to the hungry; the coat, which you guard in your locked storage-chests, belongs to the naked; the footwear mouldering in your closet belongs to those without shoes. The silver that you keep hidden in a safe place belongs to the one in need. Thus, however many are those whom you could have provided for, so many are those whom you wrong.
Poverty’s simplicity has an inexpensive beauty rooted in it, which the rich can never afford to buy
THE NAKED HEART
From womb to tomb,
There came and went –
Poor or rich,
You will die with
All the wealth you harvest
In the living,
Will go to others when you are dead.
But the true test of a lion of God –
Is to keep giving with your own hands,
Before you rest in your final bed.
My God, rich people have the time to praise You if they want to, but the poor people are so busy, accept their work as praise because, my God, they don’t have time for everything.
Back in Russia we were dirt-poor. Here in the West we are still poor but have risen above the dirt to tower alongside stalks of grass!
A Very Short Poem for Poor Lovers
You’ve got nothing,
I’ve got nothing,
And it’s not a good thing.
