Reasons to be Thankful
A rich man looked through his window and saw a poor man picking things from his trash bin. He said, “Thank God, I’m not poor.”
The poor man looked around and saw a naked man in lunatic displays on the street. He said, “Thank God, I’m not mad.”
The mad man looked ahead and saw an ambulance carrying a patient. He too said, “Thank God, am not on the sickbed.”
Then a sick person in the hospital saw a trolley taking a dead body to the mortuary. He said, Thank God, I’m not dead.”
Only a dead person cannot thank God. Why don’t you thank God today for all your blessings and for the gift of life? Don’t forget also the gift of another beautiful day.
To appreciate life better, you need to visit three places:
- The Hospital
- The Prison and
- The Cemetery
At the hospital, you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than health. In the prison, you’ll see that freedom is the most precious thing. At the cemetery, you will realize that life is worth nothing. The ground that we walk on today will be our roof tomorrow.
We all come with nothing and we will go with nothing. Let us, therefore, remain humble and be thankful to God, at all times, for everything.

Meditation: For Sheol cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You; Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your truth. The living, the living man, he shall praise You, As I do this day… – Isaiah 38:18-19
You will succeed because Jesus loves You!
