We can all benefit from a little perspective. I’m recovering from knee surgery, but some are struggling back from knee replacements or cardiac bypasses. Others are losing fights against killer diseases. My temporary inconveniences are insignificant.
I’m keeping my eye on my bank balance and the calendar, hoping October 1 comes before a negative balance. But others are paying for houses that are worth less than they owe. Some are jobless. Others don’t know how they will feed their kids today.
It’s not a new thought that there’s always someone worse off; but it’s a constant struggle to keep that in mind. The Faithbuilders page on our church website includes a number of videos that help me keep my head straight. See if they work for you. If you have some other Faithbuilders, I would love to add them.
Maybe we can build up each others faith.
