As I type this I’m watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games in Beijing. I’m not usually a big fan of stuff like this, but this ain’t half bad! If I heard Bob Costas right the cost for these opening ceremonies is around $300 million dollars!
I’m thinking…what could I do with $300 million dollars? That’s a lot of trips to Cold Stone creamery!! It’s also a lot of Jeff Gordon memorabilia to decorate my office. Come to think of it…$300 million dollars is a lot of everything!
I’ll probably never have that much, but God always makes sure I have what I need. The difference between my needs and my wants can be as wide as the Atlantic Ocean sometimes. I have to remind myself it’s not about what I don’t have that I need to dwell on. Rather I need to thank God for what I do have.
I would encourage you to do the same! Thank God every day for what you have…even if the grand total only comes out to $30 dollars verses $300 million.
