I thought to myself: We are wealthy, but sometimes we aren’t aware of the wealth all around us.
Okay, don’t get me wrong here. I’m not suggesting that Costco is a bad place because they have lots of food in their warehouse. I’m not suggesting that people who have earned and saved their money are not entitled to enjoy it. I am definitely not suggesting that “redistribution of wealth” is the answer to the world’s problems. I’m not even suggesting that you and I should empty our pocket change into the next donation bucket that we walk by.
I am suggesting that we all open our eyes and our hearts. Look around. Be grateful for what we have. Be aware of it and don’t take it for granted.
Go turn on the tap. Get a glass and fill it with water. You have just enjoyed a luxury that many people in the world do not have.
We are wealthy in ways we don’t even know. Don’t take it for granted. Take it for the blessing that it is. And then share a little. Not because you feel guilty. Not because someone is angry that you have a nice home. Not because someone protested somewhere about something.
Share a little because you have been blessed and because you have the opportunity to bless someone else. The best way to enjoy a blessing is to share it!
