I found this interesting and very true. I concur.
WHO YOU "FOLLOW" DETERMINES WHAT "FOLLOWS" YOU!
Most "poor people" I've met have much money and others occupy strategic positions in the society. One of the greatest errors of our human civilization is the definition of "rich and poor" (people) based on social and financial status. This error is directly responsible for the situation King Solomon described in Ecclesiastes 10:5-6:
"There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceedeth from the ruler: Folly is set in great dignity, and the rich sit in low place."
Who are those referred to as "folly" in the above text? It may be very surprising to know those who make up this category. It is a stark contrast to what we think. Who are the rich? An empty head is a heavy load to the neck; use that thing you are carrying on your neck and think!
If you can't differentiate between the "rich and poor" in this century, you would make costly mistakes. Some of the people we consider as rich people are the poorest people living on this planet. Due to our ignorance, we vote them to lead us, and we swear allegiance to them and lend credence to their folly unconsciously. At times, we go as far as asking them to be our mentors and role model simply because we are intimidated by their social and financial status, when actually they have nothing to offer.
Listen! Money does not make one rich, neither position in a religious system nor society. In fact, the cheapest thing to obtain in life is money and position. Robbers are everywhere today looking financially secured, but bankrupt in their minds.
Who is a rich person? Rich people may have money and position, but what makes them rich transcends money and the position they occupy. At times, rich people go without"money nor position," but they can never lack influence. This is not for children pleaseeeeeeeeee. Watch-out for more insight! DrBenard Etta
