The Million Dollar Question

Seems like all I see and read today surrounds the monumental, historical Mega Millions jackpot currently sitting at a whopping $640 million with a cash option of $462 million.

"What would you do with the money?" or some variation of that question is all over facebook and twitter.  The answers are pretty much typical.  Pay off this, buy my dream that.  Help out my friend's dog.  You know, all that meaningless drivel.

Can you tell I don't play?  It's not that I don't like to dream.  I just prefer my dreams to be free.  But what I think would be so radically cool, if the winner were to say, "God has supplied all my needs beyond anything I can ask or imagine, I am giving the whole amount (minus the exorbitant taxes) to my church."  In Malachi it says, "Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."

I believe that I would rather have those "floodgates of blessings" from the ONE who owns it ALL, rather than some measly millions.  But hey that's just me.

And for the record, my pat answer to the question above - BUY GAS!
