People always talk about what they do not have instead of giving thanks. Think about these things and be grateful. Some may not apply to everybody, but it applies to some.

Do You eat three meals a day? I know not everyone of us eat there meals but it’s not because you cannot afford it, you choose not to. The WHO says one third of the population is overfed, one third is underfed and one third is starving . Now that means 1/3 of 7 billion people are starving everyday so why won’t you give thanks

Can you read ? Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read or sign their names.
Do you have freedom of worship? More than 75% of the world population live in places with severe religious restrictions.
Are you born again; filled with the Holy Ghost filled with other tongues? Out of the seven billion people on the earth, those who have genuine faith in Jesus Christ are not up to 70%; even among these born again, a lesser percentage of those have a real experience of Holy Ghost baptism so they don’t have access into the greater things of God.
Do you attend a church where the word of God is brought to your understanding?
Are you married? Do you have children after you got married ? There are some who want to be married and are not married and; there are some who are married but do not have children.
Are you a grandparent ? There are some who don’t live to be grandparents.
