Gillian Bayford worked nights in a hospital. Her husband worked days at his second-hand record shop. Then they won 148 million pounds in a British lottery. 15 months later, their marriage has “broken down irretrievably.” The divorce is final. In addition, Ms. Bayford, wept as she told how the windfall has torn her family apart. Instead of the happiness, they expected to find she says she no longer speaks to her parents or her brother. It is all about the money now.
Real wealth, The Apostle Paul tells young Timothy, comes with godliness and contentment. Perhaps instead of buying a lottery ticket we should practice the habits that bring godliness and count our blessings instead of dreaming for more. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
1 Timothy 6:6 (HCSB) “But godliness with contentment is a great gain.”
