Ask Dave

Taking The Gamble

One listener has an interesting way to get people to give to the church.

QUESTION: Listener asks Dave about raffles as a way to pay off debt.

ANSWER: I don’t buy raffle tickets or lottery tickets or play slot machines, and the reason is just because it’s mathematically stupid. You won’t win. If you want to support your church, then support your church. You don’t need to gamble to do it. Tell the church board that there are better ways to motivate your church.
