Superiority Complex, Superior

(Psa 49:1 KJV)  Hear this, all ye people; give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world: 2   Both low and high, rich and poor, together.
It too has been my sad personal experiences that too many people find false reasons, even  supposedly Christian persons in supposedly Christian  churches, to feel superior over the  others.. and it generally seems to be  like this
-those people who never were or are not sick, are more spiritual than those who are or have been sick
-the people married are superior over those divorced, or single
-the people how have children are superior over those who do not
-the people who have a home, car are superior now as well over those who do not have them
-the people who are members of a church are superior to those who are not

-the people who are rich are superior over those who are not
-the people who are educated are superior over those who are not    

 

etc

 

 

 

(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
(Mat 18:4 KJV)  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
(1 Sam 2:7 KJV)  The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.
(Job 34:19 KJV)  How much less to him that accepteth not the persons of princes, nor regardeth the rich more than the poor? for they all are the work of his hands.
(Prov 10:15 KJV)  The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty.
(Prov 13:7 KJV)  There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.
(Prov 14:20 KJV)  The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.
(Prov 18:23 KJV)  The poor useth entreaties; but the rich answereth roughly.
(Prov 22:16 KJV)  He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want.
(Prov 28:6 KJV)  Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.
(Prov 28:11 KJV)  The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out.

(Rev 3:17 KJV)  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
 
and how do you see yourself?
 
(Psa 49:20 KJV)  Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
7  None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:
8  (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)
9  That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.
10  For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.
11  Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.
12  Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.
13  This their way is their folly: yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.
14  Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.
15  But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah.
16  Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;
17  For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.
18  Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself.
19  He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.
20  Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.
