It is a quick post, but I wanted to share something that I learned today. I was reading my Beth Moore Bible study on "Daniel". She quoted Charles Swindol. It said, "If you have enough money to purchase a book, and you have the education to read and understand that book, then you are richer than most people in other countries."
That got me to thinking, and being thankful, that we truly are richer. Most of us aren't rich financially, but we do have much richer lives, and we can do more because of where we live, and our education. With that we at least have a chance for success, whatever your definition of "success" is.
Paul said all we need to be content is clothing and food. The Lord will provide everything else. We do indeed have a lot to be thankful for.
