If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won't 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 20 million people around the world.
If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment,
arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than almost
three billion people in the world.
If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over
your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of 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 married and alive, you are very rare,
especially in the United States.
If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over
two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all.
Just something to think about when you feel like the world is crashing down on you like I do right now with no luck finding a new job.
