When the young rich man in the Bible wanted to follow Jesus, ----He told him to go sell everything he had and give it to the poor, the young man went away sad, as he couldn’t comply.
And when Satan tempted Jesus showing Him all the goods of this world, Jesus rejected it, be-gone Satan.
Jesus also said not to store treasure up in this world, but rather store treasure up in Heaven.
This kingdom on earth for a time is Satan’s kingdom, so if anyone says by being prosperous that they are favored by God are seriously misled, we have several warnings in the Bible (Lazarus and the King).
Most of the Saints rejected earthly riche’s, look at ST: Francis and numerous others.
I myself wasn’t born into a rich family, and I sometimes thank God for that in prayer, after all would the servant want to be greater than the Master? (Jesus).
I think poor people in general are richer spiritually than materialistic people, and I for one wouldn’t be happy with millions in the bank, knowing others are starving. ££££-$$$$$.

No matter what we have on this earth, we can’t take it with us, and there’s no pockets in a shroud, and I certainly don’t want to be the richest man in the graveyard.
