If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the millions who will not survive this 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 more blessed than 3 billion people in the world.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead, 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.
May the Lord ease your worries, your troubles and heartache, for only through Him are we truly blessed.
