Why You Must Abhor poverty itemizes Bible bases to despise poverty in all its ramifications. Prosperity is far better than poverty anyhow one views it. Prosperity gives regard, respect and honour to whoever, including the young and small in stature than the old and big framed. David transformed into the family head by reason of his prosperity and translation into the status of the great and his father and older siblings had to seek refuge under his lifetime umbrella. Poverty breeds disrespect, despising and all manner of frustrating feelings. The little owned by the poor is even sometimes taken and given to the rich.
