Is Gambling a Man's Thing? We Dare to Disagree

To be a professional gambler, you need to be a man - at least this is what many media outlets and society as a whole are trying to tell us. Of course, men are seen as being risk-takers but this doesn't necessarily translate into them being the only gender to enjoy playing casino games.

way. It was a BIG sin. In my estimation, at least worthy of 5-10 years
of carrying it around on my back. And it was heavy. But I deserved it. I
didn't deserve to be freed up from the load. And then? God revealed
something to me through his great book. He said,
"And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our ...." You know what that means, right? The sunrise & the sunset NEVER intersect. The sunrise never catches up to the sunset & vice versa. In other words, it's an impossible act. And so it is with God. It is IMPOSSIBLE for Him to remember our regrets over & over & over. It just doesn't happen.When we screw up, we go to God in prayer & we ask for forgiveness. THEN, we throw our sin in the garbage can. Where the garbage man picks it up--& most importantly--takes it away, never to be traced again. That's why I put a big garbage can here. To hopefully inspire someone to throw away a regret that's been heavily carried. God's not carrying it. Thankfully, neither should you.
