The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all. – Proverbs 22:2
It’s a growing trend in American politics, and it’s common around the world. So many people want to play one class of people against another.
Yet, if we were to look to biblical principles for our guide (like the Founding Fathers in America did), we would see that the act of playing one group of people – particularly the poor against the rich – promotes the rebellion of man against his Sovereign God.
There will always be poor people – always. Even Jesus said so (Matt. 26:11).
There will always be people with more than someone else – always.
But God is the maker of them all.
Until we can come to terms with the truth of Proverbs 22:2, there will always be those who play the class-warfare card to their advantage, not ours.
