Is it O.K. to be rich?

I think it is ok to be rich, as long as one isn’t arrogant or prideful over it. My uncle, for example was raised in poverty, and he went hungry more often than not. After he graduated high school he became a life insurance salesman. He has done very well, and he has also worked hard to get where he is at. He is honest ( and I am not just saying that), his personality is awesome. He reminds me of David Letterman, just the way he cuts up and jokes around. He is straitfoward with his clients, and his good reputation has built him a very loyal clientele. I know some people think that in order to follow God that you have to be poor. And, they have a right to think that if they want. Personally, I think even if a person is rich, if they don’t let it blind them to what is important ( the afterlife)then they should be fine.
