You’ve just won $1 billion dollars in the local lottery. You do not have to pay tax on your winnings. How will you spend the money?
I thought about this for some time and I decided to stick to my first response. If I won cash in a lottery I would just give it away to charity. It wouldn’t feel right to keep it. After all I didn’t earn it.
Although I am not working, my husband is, and he earns enough for us to be very comfortable. I intend to stay married to him for many years to come and so with God’s Grace I don’t think we would be in a situation where money is short. So I really don’t need it and I can think of many others who do.
I normally don’t take part in lotteries and if I do it’s just for the fun of it, not that I think I will actually win something. If I won something small like an electronics item I would probably keep it. But cash is something different.
Of course first I would have to convince my husband. I know he wouldn’t be happy that I would want to just give it away. He would tell me to pay 1/10th for my pledge and keep the rest. But like I said before I didn’t earn it so how can I keep it?
I really do believe that the more you give away the more God graces you with, and God’s Grace is much more valuable than any amount of money.
