(Proverbs 14:20 KJV) The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
This is not a statement of how it should be but an observation of reality. It would seem that some things never change. Human instinct is to be drawn to the rich and powerful while we shun the poor and weak. We are drawn to the successful. While it may be natural, it isn’t necessarily the gold standard of discernment.
We are called to a greater vision, a vision that looks at the hearts and character around us rather than the labels on clothes and the stores shopped at. The Bible calls us to be aware of differences but to focus on differences that matter. Money is not a difference that matters. Integrity is. Generosity is. Humility is.
So? Does that mean we reject people of wealth? No. We are to reject people of conceit. Keep in mind that poor people can be just as greedy as wealthy people. The major difference is that they have not been as successful in their greed.
