John Piper: “If you win the lottery, don’t give from your winnings to our ministry. Christ does not build his church on the backs of the poor.”
Here are seven reasons, among others, I have often rehearsed to make the case that you should not gamble with your money by playing the lottery.

Great talk from a great guy, thanks for sharing.

I do have one nitpick: "dialects".... Noooooo! Here's a tip, Deke:  "dialect" doesn't make sense unless you are implying "dialect of some language". Otherwise the word you are looking for is "language".

Spot on. I think being in Africa for 10 years has made me unaware of this probably growing user base.

I've had a look at it, easy and simple to use but its content is far too small, maybe its still under development I presume?

Here's a snapshot of some of what +Google Africa is doing in the developer community.
 
+Google Developers meets with +Chukwuemeka Afigbo, a Program Manager with Google, to talk about the great projects going on to spread technology in Sub Saharan Africa. Hear some great stories about how content that is traditionally online is distributed offline, and how people have succeeded with it! #CoffeeWithAGoogler https://goo.gl/JyFuw2

Slave to Christ | Servant to Wavinya | Dad | musical theologian & 'Baba Yetu' co-writer | Stanford alumnus | 10+ years at Google | Audi/VW enthusiast | avid golfer | NBA fan
Introduction
"I used to think that my joy and God's glory were completely unrelated. I lived for God's glory and not my own pleasure. I praise my Father of grace and mercy for showing me that the two are not at odds, but are one and the same, standing and falling together: that me seeking God's glory is what it means to seek my highest joy. When one is missing, so is the other. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. Oh, if only we could fully absorb the implications of this truth! I guess that is what I will spend the rest of my life trying to do. Thanks John Piper. Thank You Father."

(quoted from my friend, +Chris Gatihi, because I am too lazy to come up with something original right now, and because I echo every word of what he says here)
Bragging rights
Co-wrote the Grammy-award winning 'Baba Yetu' with Christopher Tin (who did all the hard work)
