When we talk about the rich and the poor our minds immediately go to someone’s value based on their financial position.  There are more ways to be rich or poor than with money.  People can be rich or poor in intellect or with emotions.  The bible talks about spiritual poverty and spiritual riches.  If we get it stuck in our minds that money is the key item to define poverty and wealth then we are missing out on so much joy and we are setting ourselves up for constant defeat and struggle.  Turn towards the Lord in prayer and read God’s Word regarding wealth and poverty (1 Timothy 6:3-10) and be open to expanding and shaping your perspective of rich and poor.  Amen.
