At least you don't live in Baghdad

No matter how bad you think your life is going, remember, it could be much worse.

A friend who lives in a difficult part of the world offers this reminder.

If you look at your problems in light of the daily fear and turmoil that many people in the world face you just might feel a little guilty for complaining. You could be a child soldier in Africa. You could be a woman sold into slavery in South Asia. You could be a mother who lost all her children to fighting in Columbia.

So when you send your kid off to school, go to your air-conditioned workplace, go to college where you will get an education that puts you in the top 10% of the world in education, pay only $3 for gas, or watch people on the news criticize the government; just take a moment to be grateful.

Please pray that the Gospel will pour out on Iraq and people will experience the only real hope they have of peace. What other solution is there?

  1. Hey Jana, No matter how bad you think your life is going, remember, it could be much worse (if you still worked for Mallory.) Ha! I crack myself up. Did you hear Meladie gave her two weeks. :)
