What’s LUCK got to do with it?

My friend was on her way to buy a Powerball ticket yesterday and saw a man curled up on a bench in a small park. It was a cold day and obvious that he wasn’t there by choice. She pulled over and approached him and began talking to him. She learned that he slept there, ate when he got food, and yes, he was cold. She gave him the $6.00 that she was going to spend on her lottery ticket and a Starbucks card that she had received as a gift.

This selfless act got me thinking…I wonder how many people were really hoping that they might win the $1.5 billion. I read online that one man purchased $100,000 worth of tickets. I wonder what he was planning to do with the money if he had won it?

What if we stopped wishing and hoping for luck to change our lives?

What if we leaned on God to help us with change that we want?

What if we focused on being thankful for what we have?

  1. What a small blessing she was for that man. And for the other man who spent $100,000 on tickets….wow! I couldn’t even imagine being that desperate. That money could have helped so many people. Thanks for the reminder to be thankful for what we have.

  2. Wow that is amazing! People are desperate for money, but they don’t understand that God gives us the ability to make wealth! Deuteronomy 8:18, “But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.” Thank you for this reminder of being grateful for what we have! It is true what you mentioned!
