As Christians, we should be identifying things we are grateful to God for throughout each & every day

    • At meal time prayers (for the food and clean water that we have that billions of people don’t have)
    • At bedtime (for a roof over our head, a bed to sleep in, a place to live that is safe, electricity, a car, multiple sets of clothes, shoes, etc)
    • Remember, if the world were a village of 100 people…

 

If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing ratios remaining the same, it would look something like this*:

  • The village would have 61 Asians, 13 Africans, 12 Europeans, 9 Latin Americans, and 5 from the USA and Canada
  • 12 would speak Chinese, 5 would speak Spanish, 5 would speak English
    3 would speak Arabic, 3 would speak Hindi , 72 would speak other languages
  • 50 would be male, 50 would be female
  • 75 would be non-white; 25 white
  • 67 would be non-Christian; 33 would be Christian
  • 16 would be unable to read or write
  • 80 would live in substandard housing (unsafe, not clean, no/poor doors/windows, no/poor electricity, water, etc)
  • 50 would be malnourished and 1 dying from it
  • 33 would be without access to a safe water supply
  • 16 would have no toilets
  • 24 would not have any electricity (And of the 76 that do have electricity, most would only use it for light at night.)
  • 8 people would have access to the Internet
  • 1 would have a college education
  • 5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth & all 5 would be US citizens
  • 48 would live on less than US $2 a day;
  • 20 would live on less than US $1 a day
