Episode 323 Show Notes

From the Show

There are statistics on this. It’s horrible. It can swallow people up, but your right. It’s a wisdom issue.If a Christians says, “I’m going to spend fifty dollars. I'm just going to have fun.” That’s like spending fifty dollars to go to a football game or a movie. I’m setting that limit. That’s different, I think, from someone who says, “I don’t believe in God’s providing for me and I’m going to gamble because I want to win. I don’t trust in the Lord to provide for my needs.

—Michael Horton
