Basic Blesings

An author on an online Christian Magazine named 10 basic blessings that Americans enjoyed and said they should not complain as many around the world do not have what they have. Reading through the 10 basic blessings, I found that Malaysians are enjoying quite similar blessings.

For example medical care provided by our government hospitals. Malaysian citizens who use their out patient services pay about Ringgit 2 to 5 per visit ( USD0.6 to USD1.67!). If I am not mistaken that is the cheapest health care services anywhere in this world! Of course you may have to wait a little longer for your turn. Well, there should not be any complaint considering the cost.

Another of God's grace here is that we can worship our Most High God although our country is Muslim majority. Granted there are some restrictions especially to our citizens in Peninsular Malaysia, but here in Sarawak we can worship mostly freely. It is really the grace of God that enables us to worship Him in the many churches in this state of Sarawak.( 40% of this state people are Christians).

In Malaysia we do not have earthquake because our country is not on any fault lines. Floods are only experienced in certain parts of our country usually during monsoon season at the end of each year, but they are under control. Nothing like the great floods that Thailand experienced recently.

You can say Malaysians are a blessed lot. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord for His mercy!
