Passion Party #406 - Rich Vs. Poor (Money, Part 17)
People out of work protesting on Wall Street
Others marching on Billionaire's mansions to voice discontent.
I understand the resentment people feel about those that succeed in getting
an inordinate amount of money.
But think of this:
Would you rather that Bill Gates use his money to create a foundation to help cure disease in the world and to help make America's schools world-class again, or that he give it to our government to squander by committee as they see fit?
As Mae West once said, "I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better."
I can vouch for this, from personal experience.
It all starts from getting out of "poverty consciousness"
and into action.
"The best thing you can do to help the poor
is not be one of them." - Joe Stumpf
