Have you ever had the frustrating experience of waiting in line to pay for your gas, while the person ahead of you is purchasing lottery scratch cards? I feel for the clerks who have to deal with that while they are trying to carry on with their other responsibilities.
Man has always searched for the illusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Today he hopes to find it buried under his scratch marks! Sadly those who spend the most on lottery games are those who can afford it the least.
Maybe we should search as diligently for treasure buried within the pages of God's word. "Thy word have I treasured in my heart (Psalm 119:11a NAS)." Another treasure outshines the rarest jewels, "Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you (2 Timothy 1:14 NAS)."
Forget the lottery; we are already rich in God's blessings!
