- Do you ever play the lottery?
- What if you were to win the 25-million dollar lottery prize?
- Would your life change?
Reading: Acts 2: 42-47
When I ask myself the questions posed above, my answer probably would be that I don't think my life would change much if I played the lottery and won the big prize. I often have said that I think in that case, I'd still keep my job. I would probably take a long vacation, but I would come back to work. I would probably save a lot of the money, give some to charity, maybe buy something extravagant, but I don't think I would want my life to change too drastically because of my new found fortune.
Can you imagine how the lives changed of those who learned about Jesus Christ shortly after his resurrection? When the disciples began preaching in the early days of the Church, many people's lives changed as they began to follow the Risen Lord.
How has your life changed as a Child of God? What do you do regularly to strengthen that relationship? I'm sure it is even better than winning the lottery! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
