Rich people used to feed babies with a silver spoon because it stopped them from getting sick. Silver is an anti-bacterial.February 3, 2016 10:39 am at 10:39 am #1135001TheGoqParticipant
I have to wonder what the point of this thread is, should wealthy people be ashamed of their wealth? I don’t think they should be overly proud because it all comes from HKBH and being wealthy comes with many tests but why should they be ashamed?February 3, 2016 2:08 pm at 2:08 pm #1135002lesschumrasParticipant
Actually, I’ve always thought the phrase should be ” were you RAISED ” with a silver spoon in your mouth “.
We’ve all seen wealthy children well grounded by their parents in midos, education and responsibility for their actions. We’ve unfortunately seen other children raised as selfish, entitled brats.February 3, 2016 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #1135003HashemisreadingParticipant

Rabbi Yaakov Dov of Rodoshitz used to bless people with wealth.
He would reason, “As long as people are poor, they think that money would solve all their problems.
once they have money, they at least stand a chance of realizing that what there lacking in life is really spirituality and then they’ll strive for it”February 4, 2016 2:33 am at 2:33 am #1135008The QueenParticipant
