                            Six Reasons I Don’t Play the Lottery
Just because the government may sanction something, that does not make it right. I do not
play the Lottery because:
1. It is addictive: The evidence is overwhelming - 5 million gambling addicts, “Compulsive
Gamblers Hot-line,” “Gamblers Anonymous,” and “Your 1-800 toll free number” all attest to
the addictive nature of this vice.
2. It seeks to gain at the expense of others: Do your math. Cost of ticket = $1; Jackpot = $1
million; Number of winners = 1: Number of losers = 999,999. The majority of participants
come from the poor and impoverished.
3. It violates Matthew 7:12: “All things therefore whatsoever ye would that men should do
unto you, even so do ye also unto them.” The gambler hates these words of Christ because
he does not desire that others do to him what he seeks to do unto others.
4. It is bad stewardship: God’s gracious gifts are not to be squandered. “every good gift...is
from above, coming down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17). We are stewards of what
God has given us, and “it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (1 Corinthians
4:2).
5. It violates the work ethic: God’s instruction to us is that we labor with our hands in order
that we may have whereof to give to him that hath need (Ephesians 4:28).
6. It fails the “fruit test” of our Lord: “Every good tree bringeth forth good fruit” (Matthew
7:17). Everywhere gambling has gone, organized crime is not far behind.
Heartache, addiction, loss, misery, poverty, and divorce are just a few of the undesirable
fruits associated with gambling.
Beloved, let us “abstain from every form of evil” (1Thessalonians 5:22). —Tom Wacaster
