Putting Life Into Perspective

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of only 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look something like the following:

There would be:

      57   Asians
      21   Europeans
      14   from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
        8  Africans
      52   would be female
      48   would be male
      70   would be nonwhite
      30   would be white
      70   would be non-Christian
      30   would be Christian
      89   would be heterosexual
      11   would be homosexual
        6  people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth
        6  would be from the United States.
      80   would live in substandard housing
      70   would be unable to read
      50   would suffer from malnutrition
        1  would be near death
        1  would be near birth 1 (yes, only 1 )
        1  would have a college education
        1  would own a computer

When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes glaringly apparent.

The following is also something to ponder...

  • If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...you are more blessed than the  million who will not survive this week.
  • If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ...you are ahead of 500 million people in the world.
  • If you can attend a church meeting (or choose not to) without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death...you are more blessed than three billion people in the world.
  • If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep...you are richer than 75% of this world.
  • If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
  • If your parents are still alive and still married ... you are very rare, even in the United States and Canada.
  • If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Someone once said:

What goes around comes around.
Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
Dance like nobody's watching.
Sing like nobody's listening.
Live like it's Heaven on Earth
