If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.
If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the wordl’s wealthy.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation vou are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.
If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.

I am in the middle of preparing some Harvest worship for a village group tomorrow evening, and I found this and wanted to share it, but also keep it somewhere safe where I could remind myself often of how truly blessed we really are.

Thank you so much for putting me on your blog roll! The poster is very thought-provoking. I will have to find some space for it too.

@Lesley - it's a pleasure! I'll remember to read all your posts now that it is there. Coming to your blog today, I felt that I had missed so much as I hadn't visited since the fudge discussion :) We seem to have a lot in common xx

@Thrifty Household - yes, it really makes one grateful, however bad the day has been! I'm so glad I found it.
