In case you haven’t heard, our already corrupt world is filled with acts of hate by Muslims. Not only can we read about a mass rape in the Congo in which 240 dear women were harmed horrifically, now there is this story of Christians being excluded from aid in the flooded areas of Pakistan. In fact, local governments are routing the flood waters away from Muslim landowners and into Christian and lower-class villages without warning.

During this career transition over the last six months, we’ve had to be super careful and even scale back in some areas. It has always been my opinion though that we Westerners don’t know how great we have it. I live in a 1,500 Sq Ft apartment with four girls, and some people would pity me for that. When I was in Mexico and later in India, I really got a sense for how spoiled we are, so my perspective is that I live in a mansion. Ran across this video a couple of weeks back and I can’t stop thinking about it. It reminds me that creativity and a healthy mindset go along way toward helping us be content in any living situation.
