Daily Lift #534

Honor the Person, Not the Money

You should show honor and respect to every person you meet, regardless of whether they are wealthy or poor. The only difference between a wealthy person and a poor person is in the amount of money they have. But both are created in the image of the Almighty, and when we honor people we are ultimately honoring the Creator.

(Raishit Chochmah - Shaar Ha'anavah, ch.2; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.138)
