Party with the poor (Proverbs 16:19)

"It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poor
than to divide the spoil with the proud." - Proverbs 16:19

Just thinking about my friend's absurdly large flat-screen high definition TV.

Also thinking about a discussion with a guy who was telling me about all the theological stuff he was sorting through recently. Then asking my opinion. My opinion? You have to have money to worry about theology. The poor are much more concerned about meals on their table, and their making it through the next day. They worry about grandma becoming a believer before she starves to death. Not eschatology.

Man those poor know how to party. The older I've gotten, and the more moola I've acquired the less I really party. I'm thinking High School and potato guns and dry ice bombs. Then how that changed into parties at fancy friends houses and halo parties. I'd rather watch my friends get shot with potatoes any day.

Are you dividing spoil with the proud? I'm afraid I just might be the proud, even unwilling to share the spoil.

Just thinking about a meal with an old man in a hole in a wall with a 4.5 foot door that was plenty tall for his malnourished body. I gave him some money when he begged. He asked if he could give me soup. He poured msg in some warm water and called it soup. I sat on a stool and thought about how much I wish I could communicate better with him, while drinking my msg soup. Tried not to think about the cockroaches on his walls. Man that guy knew joy.
