A THANKSGIVING MESSAGE

Some thoughts at Thanksgiving:

We found this text in a Maranatha Daywatch posting for Thanksgiving day, 2000. 1 We are not too certain about how some of the numbers were derived, but even if they are out by 50%, the message is still valid:

bulletIf you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.
bulletIf you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more blessed than the one million who will not survive this week.
bulletIf 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 today.
bulletIf you can attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more blessed than three billion people on this earth.
bulletIf 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 worlds population.
bulletIf 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.
bulletIf 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.
bulletIf you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder...you are blessed because you can offer a healing touch.
