Krishna holds Sudama (a dear childhood friend) in very high regard. When Sudama (now a poor pandit) hesitates to ask Krishna (now a great king) for help, Krishna showers him with affection, respect and warmth and helps out his old friend. In this scene Krishna offers a simhasana for Sudama to sit on and Rukmini pours water as he washes his feet (a gesture of deep respect and love). A person's status or riches weren't of any significance to Krishna.
