HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU ARE BLESSED? based on a fact sheet issued by the united nations

1. if you own just one religious book, you are abundantly blessed. ONE THIRD OF THE WORLD DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO EVEN ONE.

2. If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN THE 1,000,000 WHO WILL NOT SURVIVE THE WEEK.

3. If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation, YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN 500,000,000 PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

4. If you have food in our refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head, and a place to sleep, YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN 75% OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD.

5. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a piggy bank somewhere in your home, YOU ARE AMONG THE TOP EIGHT PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S WEALTHIEST.

6. If you hold your head up with a smile on your face and are truly grateful to God for gifts received, YOU ARE MORE BLESSED THAN MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO HAVE FORGOTTEN SO.

7. If you can tap somebody's burdened shoulder, or hold his hand toe ease his pain, YOU ARE MORE BLESSED BECAUSE YOU HAVE REACHED OUT TO OFFER GOD'S HEALING TOUCH.
