If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more blessed than the million 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 500M others.
If you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more blessed than 3Bn others.
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... 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 USA and Canada.
If you can read this you are doubly blessed in that someone is most likely thinking of you, and you are more blessed than over 2Bn people in the world that cannot read at all.
