Many people will say that the rich are greedy? And some will say that the poor are greedy? My response is both are guilty of being greedy!
Let’s talk about a couple of things. I said to myself in 2010, when the healthcare bill passed (note that I was neutral to it), why should I work? Somebody else can pay for it and I don’t have to work. Now, who’s really greedy?
It’s been said that the rich need to give more! People like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates. But you’ll never hear people say that Russell Simmons & P. Diddy need to give more. Why is that? Note that all of the above mentioned names actually have charities & foundations, but I guess the real complaint is that the money is not in YOUR hands. Now, who’s really greedy (and is the race card being thrown as well)?
Many people say there’s a class war. Here’s a question: are we blaming the rich because they are rich and you’re not?
Now don’t give me wrong, you can’t totally blame the rich for being rich, because the government (under all administrations) is helping the rich stay rich. Instead of complaining and blaming both, learn the rules to make yourself better. God can bless you with talents that will bless your life. Now what’s so hard with fulfilling your talent? Are you just too lazy to get off your behind and work towards your dream/goal/vision, whatever? It would be a tragedy to hear Jesus ask of you when you’re at the Judgment Seat, “why did you bury your talent?” With that said, you have something deep inside of you that will benefit not only you, but your realm of influence. So I ask you, are you going to continue to bury it due to fear? Are you burying it for fear of actually seeing a reality you’ve never seen before (that’s actually positive)?
It’s recorded in Scripture that the poor will be among you, and it also says (in 2 Thessalonians 3:12 – you don’t work, you don’t eat).
What I just said might have been a little off subject, but it still fit the topic.
Unfortunately, there will always be greedy rich people in this world. There will also be greedy poor people by choice. This is because they don’t want to work or they just simply want their mouths fed by someone else (even though they’re adults). It’s easy for them to be fed a fish than to learn how to fish and what it does it creates a constant cycle of greed.
Here’s something else to think about:
In closing: Focus on your purpose while you’re here on earth and don’t worry about greedy rich or poor people. It would be a waste of a life if you spent it complaining and blaming because you’re not rich or guilty corrupt rich people are living the glamorous life and you’re not!
