Proverbs 13:7 is another reading in the bible that deals with money and being humble.
Proverbs 13:7 talks about how sometimes if you act like your wealthy and a snob sometimes means you are not rich at all. The other part is that most financial wealthy people really act like any other person that don’t have money. They are frugal and humble around others and truly care about others. They are friendly with strangers and don’t think they are better than anybody else. These are just some characteristics of what this passage is trying to teach you about. How some people are trying to be better than everyone else. They are really in a worse position then you are in and they are just in denial.
This also will help parents teach their children how to act and treat others no matter how rich they are or poor they are. This is truly learned but showing your kids by example as well as telling them how to do this.
Here are two different bible translations of Proverbs 13:7
New International Version (NIV)
7 One person pretends to be rich, yet has nothing;
another pretends to be poor, yet has great wealth.
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
7 Some pretend to be rich, yet have nothing;
others pretend to be poor, yet have great wealth.
