Proverbs 22:1-2

1A good name is to be more desired than great wealth,
            Favor is better than silver and gold.

      2The rich and the poor have a common bond,
            The LORD is the maker of them all.

1 De más estima es el buen nombre que las muchas riquezas; y la buena gracia más que la plata y el oro. 2 El rico y el pobre se encontraron; a todos ellos hizo Jehová

A rich or famous person is no better in God’s eyes than a poor person. God cares and loves all of us the same. We are all His creation and He has plans for every one. He wants us all to know and trust Him. The rich can learn from the poor, and the poor can learn from the rich; the key to that is, only if God is in the middle.

James 2:1-4

1My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. 2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: 4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?


1 Hermanos míos, no tengáis vuestra fe en nuestro glorioso Señor Jesucristo con una actitud de favoritismo. 2 Porque si en vuestra congregación entra un hombre con anillo de oro y vestido de ropa lujosa, y también entra un pobre con ropa sucia, 3 y dais atención especial al que lleva la ropa lujosa, y decís: Tú siéntate aquí, en un buen lugar; y al pobre decís: Tú estate allí de pie, o siéntate junto a mi estrado; 4 ¿no habéis hecho distinciones entre vosotros mismos, y habéis venido a ser jueces con malos pensamientos?

 

There is no man that is higher than God. No matter poor or rich, skinny or obese; all are just men and we are to not put one ahead of another. We all put our pants on the same way and we all are sinners. I will listen and heed God before any man or woman. I hope we all will.
