[/quote] Yes to the bolded part above. If you put it before God and the people you love, then it becomes a problem. If you just enjoy playing the lotto once in a while, and it does not cause a problem for you or anyone else, then that's not a big deal as far as I can see. It's the heart condition.......and motivations of the heart. Sometimes I daydream about winning the lotto and I think of all the people I could help. I'm not a money driven person myself, but it's fun to think of all the people I could help if I ever won. Nothing wrong with that. Now if I daydreamed about all the things I could buy myself if I won the lotto because I loved money and loved material things, and self serving greed was the sole motivation, then that would be a problem. See the difference? It's all about what's in the heart of a person. [/quote]
