Doing Without

St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands

While on a recent cruise to the Caribbean, my wife and I met a young lady who lives and works in St. Thomas. She was telling us about how life was for her and her family in the aftermath of a devastating hurricane that hit her town. One thing that stands out in my mind is that she said that they were without water and electricity for 192 days. No water or electricity for 192 days!! We get aggravated if we have to do without one or the other for just a couple of hours!

We should learn to be more thankful for what we have.

“I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”—Philippians 4:12
