The poor man shows us how to live humbly

“The poor man utters supplications, but the rich man answers roughly” (Proverbs 18:23 NASB). Limited resources mean you need to be a wiser and better person to succeed. No matter how hard you try though, some people are just rude and will not listen. A rich person can be careless with their words or even mean and often get away with it. This shows a difference between the humble and the proud. The poor man shows us how to live humbly–by not making demands and asking politely. The rich man, however, shows the actions of a proud and ruthless person. In the end, he does himself harm (cf. Proverbs 11:17).
