1 Timothy 6:10 (NASB)
10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
Millions in the US will waste more money trying to win the BIG BUCKS of Powerball. Christians are included in that number. We are all lovers of money. While most of us pursue the riches of this world, there are all kinds of sufferings and pains that we are caring little to nothing about. How much better could that 1.3 Billion have been spent? We are being bad stewards and boldly selfish. God has called us to more than this. Let's use the resources God has given us to glorify Him and bless others.
Proverbs 21:13 (NASB)
13 He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered.
