Nothing technical here just, poor, less poor, OK and those that have a great deal of material comforts.

So, I will assume the World’s wealth to be $241 trillion as reported in and article by Business Insider Dot Com* and cited as Global Wealth Report, Credit Suisse, October 2013**; see these links:

Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.

Acts 2:44-45 ESV 

And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.

Most people believe that the USA with about 6% of the World’s population has more than 40% of the WORLD’S wealth.

1 Timothy 6:10 ESV

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

If it were more evenly shared or distributed it would surely be a very, very HAPPY THANKS GIVING.  Are you thankful for what you have?

Matthew 25:34b -40 ESV 

 . . . ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’
