The Rich And The Poor.

So, if it is the Lord who has made some to be poor and some to be rich, why then should we try to change our financial state? Shouldn't we say that this is the Lord's will for me to be rich/poor? Why should we help those who are poor since it's the Lord who made them that way?


The more I think about rich/poor the more complex it becomes. I say that because we have some people using that Scripture to justify not helping the less among us, There are negatives and positives on both sides. You cannot say that rich is good and poor is evil, or visa versa. There is good and bad in both. Question: How do you see this passages? Does poor mean in spirit or materialism? What do you think.... do the Bible justify not helping the poor?
