Today, before you say an unkind word think-of someone who can't speak.


Today, before you complain about the taste of your food, think-of someone who has nothing to eat.
Today, before you complain about your husband or wife, think–of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.


Today, before you complain about life, think-of someone who went too early to the grave.


Today, before you complain about your children, think-of someone who desires children but they're barren.


Today, before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep, think-of the people who are living in the streets.


Today, before whining about the distance and congestion when you drive, think-of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.


And today, when you are tired and tempted to complain about your job think-of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.


Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another-remember not one of us is without sin and we all answer to one MAKER.


We all need to be reminded at times that no matter how bad things are here are always others that have it worse than we do.
