Never Mock the Poor


“He who mocks the poor taunts his Maker; He who rejoices at calamity will not go unpunished.” (Proverbs 17:5)

Beware of Quotes

The best reply to this ‘wrong’ quote:

“If you are born poor it’s not your fault but if you die poor it is your fault”

Is this ‘right’ quote:

“If you’re not born in heaven, it is not your fault. But if you die and do not go to Heaven, it’s definitely your fault”


It is “not” a fault to be born/remain poor (God’s Word does “not” teach this). Only God the Savior can bring us to Heaven.
