My son’s gambling problem

I was making a deposit at the bank when my 9-year old son lean in to me and asked if he could take $3 out of his bank account. He made a wager with his friend, Ethan. He had 3 bucks on the Niners. Oh my! My son was gambling last night. The good news is (1) He wanted to pay his gambling debt; (2) he wanted to keep his word. I guess I can praise the LORD for that.

Last night the SF 49’s played the Baltimore Ravens in the 47th Super Bowl. We went to our friend’s home–the Subers, to watch the game with our Small Group. We have a SB party each year. Lot’s of fun.
