The poor

colbert-help-the-poor

No one likes the poor, not even their neighbours. If you want to be happy, be kind to the poor because the rich have many friends.

In this cash-rich, time-poor culture of ours, the most precious commodity we have is time…volunteering our precious time, is in this brutally self-involved world, the most truly selfless act – Sally Brampton, novelist and journalist (2005)

Remember, it is a sin to despise anyone – rich or poor.  We can be guilty of partiality by giving preferential treatment to some based on their apparel, showing hospitality to some and not to others, different response to people of different races and sticking to your group of friends and ignoring visitors or strangers.
