17 May 2017 DON’T BE A RICH BULLY!

Psalm 37:16

“A little that a righteous man has is better that the riches of many wicked.”

Perhaps you’ve heard someone comment that a certain person “was born with a silver spoon in his (or her) mouth.”  The thought behind the expression was that this sort of person used their financial means to bully others.

I have never had the problem of being a rich bully. More often than not I have been bullied by others who held the financial advantage. They possessed the means to assist people, but instead used it to put others in a financial bind.

Jesus often condemned those who used their wealth as a means to abuse those who had very little. You may recall His parable in Luke 16 of the rich man and Lazarus. It appears that the rich man almost taunted or even bullied Lazarus who ate the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. You can almost visualize the rich man tossing food fragments on the ground to watch Lazarus scramble for them. Both men died and the days of bullying were over. The sad wail of the rich man will be heard throughout all of eternity. Satan will forever be his bully!

It is not necessary for us to be rich in order to become rich bullies. If we have the means to make the way easier for others, yet make them miserable by withholding assistance, we are a rich bully. It is time to freely give to others!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
