God & the Lottery
A blonde woman named Barbara found herself in dire trouble. Her business had gone bust and she was in serious financial trouble. She was so desperate that she decided to ask God for help. She began to pray.
“God, please help me. I’ve lost my business and if I don’t get some money, I’m going to lose my house as well. Please let me win the lotto.”
Lotto night came and somebody else won. Barbara again prayed.
“God, please let me win the lotto! I’ve lost my business, my house and I’m going to lose my car as well.”
Lotto night came and Barbara still had no luck. Once again she prayed.
“My God, why have you forsaken me? I’ve lost my business, my house and my car. My children are starving. I don’t often ask you for help and I have always been a good servant to you. Please just let me win the lotto this one time so I can get my life back in order.”
Suddenly there was a blinding flash of light as the heavens opened and Barbara was confronted by the voice of God himself.
“Barbara, you are going to have to meet me halfway on this. Buy a ticket.”.
