Tell that to the Catholic church with all their horded wealth over the years. Or the televangelist preachers with giant mansions paid for with tithes from their parishioners while they pretend to "heal" people.

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.
It may seem difficult but it brings joy and with God anything is possible.
Remember: Love is patient, kind, ans not self-seeking.
It is a practice. It is bearing The Cross to follow Christ. Jesus said to pick up YOUR Cross and follow him.
We do not live to serve ourselves but to serve others.
May God The Father and Jesus the Christ help you to understand this truth which the flesh against The Spirit hates.
Please continue to pray for others to love their neighbour as themselves, humbly, and to treat others as they would like to be treated in every situation.
God is LOVE. Let's worship his Spirit by living through His Holy Spirit instead of the flesh against the Spirit.
Revelation 2 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Beautifully put, thank you and god bless you.
God gave enough for this world to be a paradise but man has turned it into a hell, only by following christ can they come to the truth.

I haven't always had an easy life.. and honestly.. there were times I couldn't afford food - and it was during those times that I went to this mission and got hot good food.. ate good too..
and it was nun's who fed me, even though I didn't share the same faith.. it was nun's who provided what I couldn't in my greatest hour of need.
They didn't preach to me, or judge me.. they simply gave me a nice plate of food with a smile, and once or twice a hug..
