Think of it this way. If you live in a good home, have plenty to eat and can read, you are a member of a very select group.
And if you have a good house, food, can read and have a computer, you are among the most elite.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more fortunate than the million who will not survive the week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death… you are fortunate; more than three billion people in the world can?t.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% in this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace you are among the top 8% of the world?s wealthy.
If your parents are still alive and still married… you are very rare, even in the United States.
If you can read this message, you are double blessed because over two billion people in the world cannot read at all. And because someone was thinking of you.
Live well and count your blessings.
