Is Gambling a Sin?

I have been thinking about our situation in Pennsylvania with the recent passage of legislation expanding gaming in the commonwealth. Our lawmakers can’t agree on gun control, abortion, taxes or immigration but when it comes to gambling both sides give it a standing ovation. So what gives? What does a casino down the block do to a neighborhood? Do even winners profit? Most of all isn’t gambling just an outward sign of coveting? When did it become okay to waste the resources God has given us or to bring home someone else’s pay check if we win? If life is more about giving than getting so why celebrate getting something for nothing? What do you think?

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
