Marlene and I have been fortunate enough to go on some outreach trips to areas of the world that aren’t as blessed as we are (Thailand , Cambodia, Malaysia, Africa, Guatemala, etc.).

 

Remembering what we saw in contrast to what we have and where we live, has been a constant reminder that contentment is about how I choose to look at things.  Here are some ideas of my real life problems.

 

 My Problems vs. Third World Problems

 

· A rock went through the radiator of my truck – not a cheap fix!            

 

· No vehicle – just worn out shoes

 

· My lawn has turned so brown – can’t wait for the water restrictions to be lifted

 

· Walking 12 miles for drinking water and carry it back to the hut

 

· The line up at Costco was crazy long and I when I got home no one helped me unpack all the groceries

 

· So happy we got some rice to eat today

 

· The speaker a church on Sunday was a little boring

 

· If we get caught with a bible – we could go to jail or even worse

 

· The internet and electricity was down for days...what a hassle

 

· No internet and no electricity

 

· I had to wait in the doctor’s office for 30 minutes 

 

· There is a doctor coming to the village next month – a 2 day line up to be seen

 

 

So when I find myself in a “bad mood”, bored, or just dealing with life challenges, I ask myself how my first world problems compare to the similar 3rd world problem.

 

It is a game changer and contentment follows…

 

Your friends in the business,

Larry & Marlene
