Six years ago, English teenager Callie Rogers won $3 million in the lottery. After spending through it, she says she has about $32,000 left; she sums up the last three years. “In the past six years I’ve sunk into a black hole, a black hole that at one point I thought I could never crawl out of. Winning the lottery has ruined my life.”
The amount of money one has is not the best predictor of a happy life. The Bible clearly states that real wealth comes from our attitude as much or more than from our possessions.
