John Piper has an excellent article on the Lottery

I enjoyed this article on the lottery by John Piper.

The article grabs you with the first line …

Americans now spend more than $70 billion dollars annually on lotteries.”

and nails it in the final paragraph

“So, if you win, don’t give from your lottery winnings to our ministry. Christ does not build his church on the backs of the poor. Pray that Christ’s people will be so satisfied in him that they will be freed from the greed that makes us crave to get rich.”

I agree with each of Pipers 7 reasons not to play the lottery. d it.  It is a quick read and one I  recommend.
