Lottery Ticket

"There was a man who had no faith in God. However, since he had no other way to make both ends meet, he decided to pray to God to bless him win a lottery. The man began praying every day, 'O God, help me win the lottery. O God, help me win the lottery.'

Days and months rolled by. The man became very disappointed. Finally, one day he asked God, 'O God, why are you being so cruel to me? Can't you show a little bit of compassion by letting me win the lottery?'

Suddenly he heard God's voice, loud and clear, 'Hey, why are you being so cruel to me? Can't you show a little bit of compassion by purchasing a lottery ticket?'

"Children, before we pray to God to fulfil any of our wishes, we must put forth the necessary effort. The sincerity of our efforts is the factor that draws God's grace."
