Are you thankful?
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 the world.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more fortunate than the million who will not survive the week.
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 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 religious meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death, you are freer than three billion people in the world.
If your parents are still alive and still married, you are very rare, even in the United States.
If you can read this message you are ahead of two billion people who cannot read at all.
If you can hold your head high with a smile on your face and be truly thankful, you are blessed because the vast majority can, but most do not.
"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!"
Psalm 150:6 NIV
May God bless your Thanksgiving!
