“Better is the poor who walks in his integrity than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich.” Proverbs 28:6 (NKJV)
The economically poor individual who has godly integrity, and is upright in his/her ways is far better off than the individual who has the wealth of the world, yet is without God.
I would rather be the poorest of men, begging for daily food, with God in my life; than to be the wealthiest man in the world, and not have God.
When you know Jesus Christ through His death, burial and resurrection you have the riches of heaven; what is better than that.?
