Reality Check for 2011 – You and the Global Rich List

Posted on December 31st, 2010

  Now and then it is helpful to type in our salary into globalrichlist website so we can see how our income stacks up to the rest of the world. Take 30 seconds and click below to see where you stand:

Every year we gaze enviously at the lists of the richest people in world.
Wondering what it would be like to have that sort of cash. But where
would you sit on one of those lists? Here’s your chance to find out.

I find it easy to lose perspective as I live surrounded so much wealth in the Western world and church. This simple tool helps remind me that God’s agenda and heart includes the poor, the oppressed, the orphans, the widows and those in need.  A few facts to consider: – Almost half the world lives on less than $2.50 a day. – According to UNICEF, 25,000 children die each day due to poverty. – 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water and 2.6 billion lack basic sanitation. – In the last 24 hours, 30,000 children died of preventable diseases. Often they die for lack of a twenty cent pill that purifies water. And 8 million children die before the age of five. These kind of facts remind me to stay the course and follow Jesus. May God give us grace in 2011 to see our budgets as moral, spiritual formation documents. How else did God come to you as you saw yourself on the global rich list?
