One Time It is Better to Be Poor Than Rich
In Proverbs chapter 28 at verse six, it says it is better to be poor and walk with uprightness that is with integrity, righteousness than it is to be rich, but have perverse ways.
Perverse is to have or show deliberate and obstinate desire to behave in a way that is unreasonable or unacceptable.
Perverse people do this, often in spite of the consequences.
Perverseness is to be contrary, difficult, unreasonable, uncooperative, and unhelpful. It is to be obstructive and pigheaded or bullheaded, and it isn’t fond.
If you are rich or financially wealthy, but perverse, the proverb says it is better to be poor and have uprightness.
Mark Cuban, billionaire entrepreneur, said recently that no one likes a bad attitude billionaire. He is agreeing with this proverb (not that the Word of God need Mr. Cuban to do so), so avoid being perverse, keep your integrity, and walk in the ways of the Lord.
