People with less can feel empowered by a sense of moral superiority over those who have more, but...it's a false pride. It's every bit as damaging as the character flaws the poor accuse the wealthy of possessing.For too much of my life I've been a "poor" person accusing the "wealthy" of being stingy jerks. I'm finally starting to realize that that is a faulty notion. Moreover, it's damaging to my soul and stunting to my spiritual growth. As with many of the things that I blog, tweet, and post on Facebook, I post this here as a reminder to myself to change for the better. I wonder if some people accusing Mitt Romney of being out of touch because of his wealth might not need to take a step back and try to be a little more understanding before they cast stones.
Come along with me?
