Do not envy the rich
Many times I have heard and read of envy of the rich. Do they think God favors the rich? Consult your Bible and read: Job 34, 18-19; Proverbs 28, 6: James 5, 14-16, and many others.
If you are dissatisfied with what you have, educate yourself, so you can earn more.
I am not, and have never been, close to being financially rich, and I am OK. Richness comes in many forms other than money and material goods. Love and good health are more important.
