Proverbs 22:1 begins by stating "A good name is more desirable than great wealth, the respect of others is better than silver and gold." So when we meet someone respect is key. I am reminded of the Rolling Stones song 'Sympathy for the Devil' in that Lucifer demands respect as well as good taste when you meet him. So have some courtesy with each person you deal with. You might not always be able to see the very commonality you share but it is there. For Proverbs 22:2 states, "Rich and poor are found together, God made them all."
The reward of humility is the fear of Yahweh, riches, honor and life.
