Life Around the World in Pictures

A few photojournalist articles have been published in the past few months that show many eye opening (and often shocking) contrasts between cultures and standards of living across the world.  The three sets of images are focused on children’s toys (Toy Stories), children’s homes (Where Children Sleep) and families’ weekly diets (What the World Eats), but they also reveal much about differences in wealth, consumption, materialism and families.  The approach is similar to that used in a book published nearly 20 years ago called Material World, where the photographer convinced families all across the world to move all of their possessions into their front yard for a picture.

As you review the images, thank God for what He’s given you, seek contentment what with you have and strive to help those who are less fortunate that they may know the love of God through your help.
