Before the Offering Sunday Soundbyte

A South Carolina retiree recently won the $259.9-million Powerball Jackpot. If you made $50,000 a year, it would take you 5,198 years to earn that much money. That’s like working from the time of Abraham.

If that Powerball winner wanted to pay off this year’s $1.6-trillion federal budget deficit, he would have to win the same jackpot 6,156 times in a row … or you would have to work 5,198 x 6,156 … about 32 million years. Goodness!

(PAUSE) Let’s see, a tithe on those earnings would be 10% of $1.6 trillion = $160 billion! I don’t think our church could spend that much money, at least not right away!
