Rich…having the most or needing the least?


Nearly 1/2 of the world’s population lives on less than $2.50 a day.

Approximately 1.2 billion people still live without access to electricity.

783 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation.

If you live in the United States with a household income of $30,000 and your household has 2 adults you are in the richest 9.2% of the world’s population; your income is 12 times the global average.

Since so many millions have so much less than me help me recognize how rich I truly am.

A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God.  Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.                      I Timothy 6:6-8 (MSG)
