                             We Are Blessed

If you own just one Bible, you are abundantly blessed;  1/3 of the world
does not have access to even one.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more
blessed 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 around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest or
torture of 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, even in
the United States.

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.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the
shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God's healing touch.

If you prayed yesterday and today, you are in the minority because you
believe in God's willingness to hear and answer prayer.

If you believe in Jesus as the Son of God, you are part of a very small
minority in the world.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion
people in the world that cannot read anything at all.
