Day 8 - Don't Trust In Your Riches, But Trust In God
"Are you rich? Did you realize that if you personally make more than $1500 per year you are richer than 75% of the world's 6+ billion people!" (Brian Kluth)
To consider myself among the top 25% of the richest people on the planet is a very confronting statistic. I understand the perspective that my "wealth" is proportional to our economy, however, I believe that we should allow the implications of this statistic to challenge our spirits for a while. It is irreconcilable for me to give thanks for what I have and at the same time ignore what others don't have. My gratitude to God is best expressed in generosity to others.
