Gambler #5

He said, “Son, I’ve made a life out of readin’ people’s faces
And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes.
So, if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces.
For a taste of your whiskey, I’ll give you some advice.”

The old gambler was just doing what came naturally. He hoped to get free booze, a cigarette and even a match in exchange for erroneous advice. The young gambler didn’t see this one coming. How many listen to advice that will only make their lives worse?

Matthew 23:15

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.

Be careful as to whom you’re getting advice from.

Think about it.
