Try to Clear up the Matter

I live with a group of friends, suddenly one of them showed signs of becoming rich. His salary, however, in no way corresponded with his prodigious spending. As a result, feelings of doubt about him found their way into my heart. Should I continue to live with him or should I part company with him?

It is necessary for you to ask your friend about his sudden richness. Maybe he received a gift from a friend, maybe he received payment for a special job, maybe he inherited some money. There are many possibilities. Ask him first, if he tells you that he acquired the wealth through lawful means, then that will end scepticism. But if you find out that he acquired his new wealth through means that are unlawful, you must advise him. Then, if he doesnt accept your advice, part company with him so that you are not a partner with him in eating of that which is unlawful.
