Day 23…If I won the lottery.
In all honesty, I’d be very surprised if I won the lottery, considering I don’t believe in gambling.
That aside, if I somehow did win, I would donate the money to charity. I don’t need the money, so I’d want to give it to people who do need it. I would pray about about it and ask God where He wanted me to donate the money, and be on a search for organizations that could use it wisely.
I would never want it to be used as a free ride through life. From the time I was little, I’ve known that I want to enter the work force someday. If I didn’t work, I’m pretty sure I would feel bored and unproductive.
There are so many people in this world who can’t even afford basic provisions, like food and water. I would want the money to go to people like that; people who could use the money to feed their families and create a better life for themselves.
Every day, we are called to be a blessing. Even if we can’t afford to give financially, we can show the love of Jesus in other ways, like through a kind word or a helping hand. We can volunteer our time and look for ways to make this world a better place.
I don’t want to ever go through life wondering what I could have done.
I want to make the most of my time here and be all that God created me to be.
We can all, in some way, shape, or form, do our part to make a difference.
