This statistic is a reminder of society’s misplaced priorities. “Households with incomes of under $13,000 a year spend an average of 9 percent of their income on lottery tickets.”
That’s almost a tithe of their income thrown away. If the legitimately poor can afford to squander 9% of their income on the lottery, then we can afford to invest 10% of our income on Kingdom causes. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
