“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth,which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God,who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.” – 1 Timothy 6:17-18
What do you think about the privileges (or blessings) associated in regards to nationality, race, wealth, education, looks, and so forth?

Or is there another way for people to behave in Christian society?
