Thoughts and Reflections

There are times we look at where we are and feel low because of the valley we are in...
think on these things...
• About 250,000 - 300,000 people die per day. If you can read this be thankful.
• According to Inter Press Service, while around 100 million have no housing whatsoever, over one billion people on the planet lack adequate housing. If you have a home and clean drinking water...feel blessed ..because lots of people don't.
• At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day, so if you have $15 you are richer than 80% of the world.
We should not use the troubles of others to elevate ourselves; we should use what we have as a reminder to pray for others.
So when you are down to eating rice and beans and think you have hit bottom.. be thankful and then pray for the 925 million people in the world who are hungry.
Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:18
