A lady was standing in front of a casino when she was approached by a desperate looking man, “Please!” the man begged frantically, “Could you possibly spare $500. My wife is very sick & I really need the money to take her to the doctor & to buy her the medicine she needs.”
The lady looked at him suspiciously & said, “If I give you $500, how do I know you won’t just go into a casino & gamble it all away?”
The man quickly responded, “Oh no, I wouldn’t do that! I’ve got gambling money!”
“Let us think often that our only business in this life is to please God. Perhaps all besides is but folly and vanity.” - Brother Lawrence.
Lord Jesus said: “And he who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, because I always do what pleases him.” (John 8:29 GNT)
