The Kozhnitzer Magid was asked, "Why is it that the Berditchver (Kedushas Levi) who is such a holy man
yet so poor and the other Rebbe who is not as holy but is
a wealthy Rebbe?"
The Magid answered "it's very simple it all depends on
the Chasidim the Rebbe has. The Berditchver's Chasidim
come for ברכות for עליה ברוחניות and the Rebbe is
מתפלל בעד חבירו therefore, he is נענה תחילה and keeps
growing in רוחניות.
The wealthy Rebbe, his Chasidim ask for ברכות
in גשמיות. so the Rebbe is מתפלל בעד חבירו and
is נענה תחילה by becoming rich."
