"We Are So Blessed"

  The man and his wife were standing in front of their television set. He told her he had lost his job, the payment on their mortgage was due and they had no money for it, many bills were unpaid, and their car had been stolen. Yet he remarked, "We are so blessed." It so happens that they were viewing the conditions of death and destruction in the aftermath of the recent earthquake in Hayti and realized how blessed they were in spite of hardships pressing upon them.

  When we see what many have to suffer we ought be ashamed to complain. Many of Israel who came out of Egypt murmured and complained themselves right out of entering the Promised Land.
