Thought for the Day

Morality is not to be decided by the attitude of the world; only by His Word- the teachings of God. Let us start with “Gambling”.

The spirit behind gambling is Covetousness and one can gain at gambling only at the expense of others. 

Luke 12:15; 15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” 

And too often, those who lose at gambling do so at the expense of their families.  We Forget, as Christians, we live by a Golden Rule.

Matthew 7:12; 12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.”
