Remember that old idea about "class"?

We all know what is meant by the different economic classes, but there is also the use of the word “class” that is meant as a term of honor, often used as a type of blessing on someone when they are said they have it. It would be good to have a spiritual definition of the word "class," which seems to have lost its meaning, impact, and importance.

When God affects the character of those with more money than average, that is called “class” --- but it can also happen to people with little money. We can just call that spirituality or virtue, because we aim to distinguish between those with money who “lord it over others” and those with money who have class. It might be true that there are less people with class at one time or another.
