How Rich Are You Really?

Do you think you are rich or poor?

Most of us think we could be better off, but that is because we constantly compare ourselves to people who are richer than us.

Let's take a look at the big picture for moment.

According to the World Bank Research Group, the average annual wage around the world is about $6000.  That's PER YEAR!

If you want to see how well off you really are, go to this site:  and plug in your annual salary.

If you consider your earthly wealth to define who you are, then you have your confidence in something that is insecure and could/will not last forever.

Put your confidence in Jesus Christ; an investment in Him will not disappoint!

That is a sobering site, to realize how blessed we Americans are with earthly wealth, as compared to so many around this world, God has given us.

BTW, a A blessed Ascension Day to all!

Ascendit Deus!
