Poor vs Rich? Which is Truly Better?

Rich versus poor, which is better? What if the opposite of rich is not poor? What if rich and poor are the same thing and "enough" is the opposite of both rich and poor?

Will you join us in looking at this because if you are like me this might be fantastically helpful for looking at money and not judging based on wealth, either self or others?

If you find anything helpful in this, will you please leave a like on the video at the end of this post because you will feel great helping people find this information?

Poor vs Rich? Which is Truly Better?

In a world of rich and poor, what if we look at the differences today and see shocking similarities. Let's talk about the rich and the poor.

The poor suffer for not having enough money, not able to have food, not able to have the comforts of an everyday life.

The rich suffer from having too much.

The rich are afraid: "What will happen to my money? Where do I go to eat tonight? I can eat anywhere I want to. Where should I go? I don't know. There are so many choices. I'll just stay home and order the same thing I did last night."

Poor vs Rich? Which is Truly Better?

The poor get thin out of not being able to eat and sometimes the poor starve to death.

The rich get fat from eating too much and the rich die of heart attacks and strokes.

The poor sit on the street with nothing to do all day and people walk by and say, "Wow, what a bum. Get a job."

The rich work all day, and then don't have any time to see their families while thinking, "Man, if I just had a little bit more money I could afford to retire and take a vacation."

The poor man has wealth in time.

The poor man can go do whatever he wants to. There is no job anyway, why not walk around and see everything beautiful all day?

The rich man is a peasant when it comes to time.

He has to be accountable.

"I need to go to work and make my money. I need to check on my prices and my investments."

The rich man fears constantly over where his wealth will go.

"Do I have enough money to buy this new building?"

"Will I be able to buy more?"

"Will I be a bigger deal?"

"What are these other people going to do?"

"What if I lose all my money?"

"Will anyone still love me if I can't give them money?"

Rich. I had to choose between fixing up my daughters guinea pig, or myself after a bad diverticulitis attack. I choose the guinea pigs and said goodbye to $500 which meant I wasn't able to get myself treatment and had to treat myself at home. Rich people don't have to make that choice.

To answer your question, without making up any scenario or making assumptions of "what might happen"... "Rich" is always, 100% of the time, better. Always...

That aside, i think i like your post, in the matter of fact i like it so much id be willing to trade wallets with you so we see whats truly better. haha. :D

a poor with High knowledge is far better than A rich with low knowledge power .. because knowledge is power


I would say: "a poor man with good knowledge is more virtuous then a rich man with little or no real knowledge"... power is another concept.. mostly spiritual or soul.. (the last frase was a joke or was it?)..


buddy if you have knowledge you are strong in both spiritually as well as in soul because he know what is to be done Knowledge Is Power Isnt a joke honey


Ok, I like your comment, but please don't call me honey.. no offense I am not just "to men" lol

The rich people which became rich themselves or those how got the money. But the poor are more happy. life making money doesnt' make you success.

I don't know anymore... I was just showing your blog as an example to one I meet in the office.

Got surpriced about your rewards, they used to be higher... but then again you are already rich, so what does it matter? :)...

I don't even know if I can pay the rent next month, the stress of living like that I mostly got used to, but yes it took a huge told on my health.. something that cronies, mostly don't understand...

With Steem more people have the oppotunity to get out of slavery.

Steem on!



i Agree with that
With Steem more people have the oppotunity to get out of slavery.
hahah and about richness i think you are again right jerry wouldnt care about rewards haha

rich is better....but.....what trully matters is salvation because Heaven and Hell exist, are not symbolic or abstractions or anything ....the conscious mind with some parts of the subconscious(that together form the Soul), when you die, will be transmitted to other place via some waves we don't know. I am a catholic so I believe in the purgatory, many people will not inherit the Heaven directly, they will have to go through the purgatory to correct some aspects of their characters....Almost all rich people will have to go through purgatory to correct their narcissism. It's easier for a camel to go through a needle than a rich man to go directly to Heaven.


everybody saying than poor is better....Strange that I never see rich people giving away money on the street because they have too much....The answer is: don't judge people based on wealth, judge them based on character


Jesus died to pay the penalty for all of our sins (Romans 5:8). Isaiah 53:5 declares, “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” Jesus suffered for our sins so that we could be delivered from suffering. To say that we must also suffer for our sins is to say that Jesus’ suffering was insufficient. To say that we must atone for our sins by cleansing in Purgatory is to deny the sufficiency of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus (1 John 2:2). The idea that we have to suffer for our sins after death is contrary to everything the Bible says about salvation.


nop.....you, in the purgatory, will be purified in your character to enter in Heaven, because in Heaven everything is perfect, so if there is some portion of evil in any person there, it stops to be Heaven....Heaven is Heaven because there is no bad people there.


And that's one of the differences between catholics and protestants....You protestants believe the Bible is the Word of God, we believe that, although the Bible is the most important tool to get to Christ and, consequently to God, the Bible is not the word of God.....The word of God is Christ....we have to read Christ in the Bible through the Holy Spirit inside ourselves...so, if the Bible tells you "Go stone that woman for this or that" and Christ in ourselves tell us "Don't", we have to obey Christ more than to the literal words of the Bible......but even the words of the Bible don't tell us that the sacrifice of Christ is enough....Sacrifice of Christ is essential, because without it noone would be saved, but it's not enough....We have to be good and to sacrifice a bit too to go to Heaven.

I been watching you're videos bro on youtube! great content brotha!

The poor are more happy. While the rich are troubles behind money. If a poor man receives a food, he divide & eats half- half both, and whenever a rich man shares food, then he keeps account of it.

sai che secondo me hai ragione....poi esiste di sicuro l'eccezione ma in linea generale è come dici tu

Send me all your coin and then let's both write a comparison! Real life experience, that's the best teacher!

Both are good it self both having problems stay happy in any condition

And both of them walking down the road and get hit by truck, both dies... One says he have no regret enjoying his life and live his life as it is his last day, another one try hard brain storming how much he could rack profit and being cheap on everything, in the end both dies. One enjoy their life and one hoarding. In life making money doesnt' make you success, its the way how you live your life makes you success. Beleive or not if both of them have cancer one would live happily over another because they value what in this life and what they have done. And another which never experience anything in life while trying to make more and more which its call greed/gluttony.


The problem in the current world is that many rich are becoming rich via shady practices, that are often bad for the poor.

Rich and definition of the poor have been very good to me if you ask the poor mean what I should of course must be completed, it will be more not understand the need to find I am the man that he will be very difficult if you do not have poorer eating man he needed so money will die hungry so so too not live the man to be the toughest right time in my family the Could so much money even harmful So I would say that poverty should be everything better, but eating.

You can have all the money and power in the world but it can't buy you happiness and it certainly can't buy you love

It's a nice evaluation on the rich and poor, Jerrybanfield.
Of course,being rich wouldn't be an option for me., One thing I've got to say is that there's always a two side of a coin. Both(poor and rich) at a certain level of evaluation have their Merits and Demerits. But certainly,being rich is the best option for anyone.

poor with a big heart!! is better way for a better life!

an interesting summary, I like your post

Easiest way to get out from the poor is to sign up for free cryptos. They will increase a lot in value http://freeairdroptokens.com/

Wow! Such a list of all the links to the different social platforms. You truly are a marketing guy. :)
You working hard for it. Nice. Keep it up

Whatever RICH or POOR , Both are the soft CURSE of the world unless you can handle wisely them.

There's one thing money can't buy, poverty; it can't buy you an empty stomach. There rich are happier, because they don't have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, or how they're going to pay the bills, or will they end-up homeless and who says the rich have to work for money.

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
2 Corinthians 8:9

I think you should differentiate the rich people which became rich themselves or those how got the money from there parents. Yesterday I have written an article about why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer what do you guys think about that?

I've always said I'd rather cry in a Ferrary tho... xD

The rich are worried about money and about protecting it, Worry about doubling money, Worry about how to spend money.
The poor are worried about their lives, Worry about earning money, Worry about trying to save money.
Worry is a common thing, in rich and the poor.

@jerrybanfield poverty is in the mind, discouragement, low self-esteem, negativism. The rich man is helped by his aptitude, his mentality, his desire to excel, his positivism. It is my humble opinion.... Greetings from Venezuela!
