Gambler #8

Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep

‘Cause every hand’s a winner and every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep

Now there is something to hope for. Death brings an end to the game. You won some and you lost more and your hope is to die in your sleep. You were just another product of time and chance and the luck of the draw. Practically every person who buys a megabuck ticket has the same philosophy.

The Bible doesn’t just contain the best you can hope for, it can anchor you to a sure hope.

Romans 15:13 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Romans 12:12 

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Psalm 39:7 

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you.

Give it some thought.
