If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the millions who will not survive the week.
If you have never experienced the dangers of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 500 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 3 billion people in the world.
If you have food in the 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 some place, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over 2 billion people in the world who cannot read anything at all.
If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.
