What is the effect of paying attention to people who are less well off?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that Imam Sadeq (AS) told Hamran ibn A’ayon: O’ Hamran, pay attention to those who are lower than you and their abilities are less than you, and never look at those higher than yourself. If you do so, you will be satisfied with what you have. In that case you will be rewarded by Allah (SWT) [1]. If we look at those who are well off and more comfortable or healthier than us; firstly, the life will become bitter; secondly, the human being will be encouraged to add to his/her worldly possessions constantly.
