"Some people are so poor, all they have is money” is a popular saying that has been printed on many posters. The saying means that some people, despite having money, are spiritually poor.
Authorship is unknown. “Some Christians are so poor all they have is money!” was cited in the book For All Seasons (1985) by Derick Bingham. The saying has been frequently (since 2012) credited to Patrick Meagher, co-author of Devolution and Development: Governance Prospects in Decentralizing States (2004), and to Chicago author Maureen Gill, whose first novel was January Moon (2010), but neither is likely to have originated the saying.

‘Why’, said a friend of mine from County Armagh as she and her husband set off to serve the Lord in France after selling up home and hearth, ‘Some Christians are so poor all they have is money!’ I know what she meant.
