The bible says he who exalts himself will be humbled and he who humbled himself will be exalted and many formerly rich people have ruined their lives by ignoring this principle.
My cousin’s ex husband was raised by a harsh disciplinarian who made him walk 3 miles up a hill when he was 10 years old to teach him the importance of sacrifice and hard work. He became a rich and successful Wall Street banker, unsurprising, when you consider how hard his parents worked him when he was a child.
But after he became rich, he started behaving like a snob and would mock and humiliate poor people thinking he was superior to them, he ended up divorcing my cousin after 8 years of marriage and losing his Wall Street job due to market changes in the post CoVid economy.
My cousin also lost respect for poor people after becoming rich and now she’s lost her multi million dollar job and works as a tutoring business owner and she is infertile and only able to find boyfriends that are divorced and bad tempered due to her lying and bad tempered ways. She was once the queen of the world with dozens of guys chasing her every month and now she can’t find a date and looks unusually old from the stress of her S Wall Street job.
My other cousin was also a snob and recently got a divorce and has to move out of her home since her husband paid the majority of the down payment and now her parents have moved in to take care of her kids and she has to support 5 people with one pay cheque since her parents can’t speak English and have health issues and are not able to find work in North America.
I also know a girl who is constantly showing off and every time I talk to her, she has a new problem she is dealing with. She never made the connection that her problems are caused by her constant bragging and if somebody told her, she would not believe them.
