Balance: God is the common origin of all of us
Prov. 22:2 "Rich and poor have this in common: The Lord is the Maker of them all.", The rich usually do not want to identify with the poor. God is the common denominator of all of us. Plus, we have the same parents, Adam and Eve, so we're all kin, going 'way back. Rich and poor also have: the same "time capital"; both will die and leave everything; both have the same avenue of access to God and both will meet their God; Scripture gives more hope for the poor than for the rich in that encounter (Luke 18:25). Poverty itself is not a moral advantage, since it could be attained by dissoluteness, lack of self-control and slothfulness. Riches itself are not morally advantageous, since it could be attained by deceit and greedy self-interest.
