The rich man did not help Lazarus one bit, even though Lazarus’s condition was so bad, being covered in sores, that “even the dogs came and licked his sores” (Luke 16:21). The rich man daily “was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day” (Luke 16:19), but would not spare some food for Lazarus who “[longed] to eat what fell from the rich man’s table” (Luke 16:21).

When his mother dies, he does not hide his true feeling. He does not shed fake tears over her death. He expresses what he really feels.

He was the top of his class growing up, but he wasn’t quite a model student - he hated rich children and was almost expelled for stabbing one with a knife.
