Rich or Poor

Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.  Proverbs 19:4 KJV

My Pastor, Dr. Bill Sharp, used to say, “Rich has many friends but poor is an orphan.” His rendition of Proverbs 19:4 always stuck in my mind and helped me get through a difficult time in my ministry. It is a simple declaration of how fickle people are and how quickly they will desert you when you are going through hard times and are perceived to have no value to them.

God is no respecter of persons. Whether you’re up or whether you’re down, He will never leave you.
