A couple days ago I noticed a piece of litter along the road where I walk the dog—a large Starbucks cup and lid. I thought, "I'm surprised that people who can afford Starbucks would litter." Immediately I realized the prejudice that I was participating in: rich people don't litter; poor people litter. I repented immediately.
Money doesn't make people behave better. It doesn't make them feel better about themselves. Outward things—possessions, recognition, success—have little to do with the inner person. Behaviors and attitudes are generated within. As Jesus said, It isn't what goes into a person that defiles the person, but what comes out, because out of the heart comes all manner of evil. We can't rightly place blame on anything or anyone for our choices.
This may be one way in which we are like God. He is self-sufficient, separate and independent of his creation. He made us sovereign individuals, fully responsible for our own thoughts and actions. When we fully realize that and come to recognize how incapable we are of doing consistently what we know is right, we understand why we need a savior.
