The Wealthy Never Use their Own Resources But Instead, Steal from The Poor

David, having killed Uriah by proxy and taking for himself Bathsheba…

… the thing that David had done displeased the LORD, and the LORD sent Nathan to David. He came to him, and said to him, “There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor.  The rich man had very many flocks and herds; but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. He brought it up, and it grew up with him and with his children; it used to eat of his meager fare, and drink from his cup, and lie in his bosom, and it was like a daughter to him.  Now there came a traveler to the rich man, and he was loath to take one of his own flock or herd to prepare for the wayfarer who had come to him, but he took the poor man’s lamb, and prepared that for the guest who had come to him.”

Then David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man. He said to Nathan, “As the LORD lives, the man who has done this deserves to die; he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.”

Nathan said to David, “You are the man! (2 Sam. 12:1-7)

And so it is.  Wealthy CEO’s of hospitals don’t purchase enough equipment for an emergency so they go to the poor and demand them, or else.  Wealthy airline owners heap up profits for themselves and when business grinds to a halt, they demand that the taxpaying poor bail them out.  Cruise line billionaires build barns to store their profits, and when cruises are no longer happening they demand a bailout from the poorest taxpayers.

The wealthy rob from the poor to cover their needs and leave them with nothing.  Meanwhile, unbeknownst to them, they are storing up astonishing wrath in their account with God, and when it comes due, they will fully pay it.
