If you have a little money in the bank or spare change in a dish someplace... you are among the the 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you you can drink from your kitchen faucet whenever you want....you are more fortunate by far than 1.5 billion people who have no access to clean water at all.
If you can attend a church or a political rally without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death...you have the kind of freedom denied to more than three billion people in the world.
If you can read this message, you are more blessed than two billion people who cannot read at all.
If your everyday problems are weighing you down, there are millions of people on earth who would gladly trade placeds with you right now...problems and all---and feel they have been royally blessed.
Remember: "To whom much is given, much is required."
