Do You Think You Might Have A Gambling Problem?

I had a terrible addiction to alcohol and drug while growing up. During that time, I was wise enough not to do two things, one was not to own a gun, and the other was not to gamble. I made these decisions when I was with a clear mind, and I am glad I set boundaries for both of them. I knew enough to know that if I started to like gambling, it could have caused significant problems. I encourage you to be extremely careful if you insist on gambling, but better yet, do not gamble. ~Bill Greguska 

Jeremiah 17:10  “I the Lord search the heart and examine the mind, to reward each person according to their conduct, according to what their deeds deserve.”
