Casino Resorts and Gambling

Planning your vacation?

As you consider your vacation options and talk with others, you may discover that casino resorts are popular tourist destinations. They offer entertainment, dining, spas, and shopping. Outdoor activities might include hiking, golfing, and sightseeing. Oh, and there’s also gambling! Now this activity provides an adrenaline rush and a risk to customers’ finances and character. The math is just not on your side! Gambling boils down to self-gratification and the thrill of hitting the jackpot. Winners walk away happy while ignoring those who lose. America has the most casinos in the world: 2,157 with profit margins ranging from 1% to 25%. The industry tempts guests with just enough winnings so they want to return.

Some people say gambling is simply entertainment, like fishing, watching a movie, or going to a baseball game, but when someone wins at gambling, they do so at the expense of others. Losers often go into debt, and addicts will gamble more in the hopes of landing a big win to cover their losses. An estimated 10 million Americans are gambling addicts. A majority of them also struggle with alcohol or drug addictions. Half commit crimes to support their habits – others choose suicide.

Faith that’s put in luck and random chance ignores God’s Word. His wisdom, understanding, and knowledge, along with Godly counsel, improve the opportunity for true financial success. So skip casino resorts for your vacation! Choose something that’s life-giving and God-glorifying!
