Lets consider all the wonderful beautiful blessings that one could do for others with 7.5 million dollars less taxes.
Lets consider sick or ill loved ones who would be in the best hospitals money could buy with 7.5 millions less taxes
Lets consider all the wonderful beautiful blessings that one could do with this kind of money.
Now lets consider giving it up.
One reason I see if its not a criminal.
We have all heard that MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
but it isnt true
The saying isnt Money is the root of all evil
its THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL
So apparently this person isnt a person who loves money.
So this tells me it is a religious person possibly a priest, a paster, someone in the clergy.
Someone who has their perspective in order knowing that MONEY CANY BUY ME LOVE.
I know a man just like this. He was from Scotland and everyone knows wiskey is very pupular in scotland.
He was a pastor and went to a pub to pick up a fellow who called the pastor saying he was drunk and needed for him to come pick him up rather than drive drunk. So the pastor went to pick him up and at the end of the bar was a man like Bill Gates(not Bill Gates but very very wealthy)
He had heard of this pastor and heard of his reputation that he being full blooded scotish had never once touched liqior to his lips
So the rich man offered him 1000$ dollars to have one shot of wiskey, and the pastor declined. So the rich man uped the antie and said 5000$ the pastor declined.
At this time the entire pub was watching. The rich man could not believe anyone could turn away 5000 so he uped it to 25,000$ and it was declined
and eventually offered him 1,000,000$ one milllion dollars
The pastor stopped and looked at all the people watching him and then said sir your money will do no good for me and said he will stick with his principles and declined.
No one could believed it.
The pastor walked out.
The next day the pastors church was flooded with people. Including every single person who was at the pub. More than any time in scotlands history.
And guess who els was there? The rich man.
The reason so many people showed up at his church was because the people thought if anyone could turn away that much money they could be trusted with their lives because they were not motivated or moved by money.
That church became one of the biggest churches in scotland.
This was a pastor you could trust. He wasnt after your money.
It may seem dumb for anyone to pass up this much money. Yet some people believe it or not are not moved by money no matter how much it is.
Its somthing most of us simply dont understand.
The rich man donated to this church a very large sum also.
The love of money is the root of all evil.
Or maybe they are someone able to give it up because they are most likly older and might not have any family members left. And on the verge of death anyhow so decides to let the lottery keep it and be the ones who gives it away instead of them.
Why they bought the ticket in the first place might be a mystery. Yet one time in Chicago I think it ws a priest went into a convienient store and asked for directions and the clerk thought he said a lottery ticket and put it in his bag with the gum. And he said what is this? the clerk said its the lottery ticket you asked for. The priest said I didnt ask for a lottey ticket, and the clerk said well its alrady paid for and its yours.
The priest kept it and won the lottery in the next drawing with that ticket.
So its all up to the person if they want to keep the ticket or money. Its a personal choice.
The first story the pastor declined the money and it worked out for the better
The second story the Priest kept it but got the ticket by mistake and it worked out for the best.
Its a personal choice.
