Let us not place our hope in winning a “jackpot or lottery,” but our hope must remain in Christ, who gives us the power to get wealth

Beloved of God!

As we embark upon the holiest time in the Christian Church calendar, I pray that
our focus today is on the goodness, grace and mercy of God and not on the $540+
million lottery. While the scripture does not say, “thou shall not gamble,” there
are numerous scriptures that point to God’s methods for wealth creation: Deuteronomy
8:18; Proverbs 6:6-8; Proverbs 13:11; Proverbs 21:5, 20; Proverbs 28:20; and Malachi
3:10-11.
Numerous studies have proven that the lottery system is supported by the
poorest communities in our nation. Those who can least afford to spend $10 – $40
per week on tickets are the very ones who comprise the bulk of ticket sales. Therefore,
winners of these lotteries are in essence reaping their sudden wealth from the poorest
members of our society. If we were asked today to stand in line for hours to share
the Gospel of Christ, how would we respond? Saints, let us not place our hope in
winning a “jackpot,” but our hope must remain in Christ. It is unequivocally, the
greatest and most rewarding investment that we will ever make.

 

 

 

 

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
