A pious man found himself suddenly deprived of all of his wealth. Knowing that God would help him no
matter what, he began to pray: “Lord, please let me win the lottery,” he asked. He prayed for years and
years, but was still poor. One day he died, and -since he was a very pious man, he went straight to
heaven. When he arrived there, he refused to enter. He said that he had lived his entire life according to
his religious teachings, and that God had never allowed him to win the lottery. “Everything You promised
me was a lie,” the man said, disgusted. “I was always ready to help you win,” the Lord responded. “But,
no matter how much I wanted to do so, you never bought a lottery ticket.”
