...about what everyone else has? Why can't you be content with what you have? If someone else was rich by their own righteous efforts would you envy them their reward? If instead they were wealthy by some form of graft, would you feel you were owed some of those ill gotten gains? What the rich have or have not is really none of your or my business, since it doesn't belong to you or me. How much money or riches would it take to make you happy? How much money taken from the rich would make you happy? Why is it alway so much about envy with you? I would wager the rich have never done anything against you and that any money problems you may have or had in the past actually stemmed more from your own shortcomings than anything others have done to you. When you start living your own life and quit worrying so much about others who may have more, you will find happiness, even in having less than they. Money and possessions can be a worry and vexation of the soul.
