Jesus gets new mention by Ga. lottery winner after 'Duck Dynasty', Fox mentions

Sure it is about to be Jesus Christ's birthday, but a Georgia lottery winner is talking about him for a different reason right now, as she just won $120 million after-tax dollars from a Mega Millions win. But Ira Curry isn't alone in discussing the famous religious figure, she just is the only one of the three currently in the spotlight that shared it on her Ira Curry Facebook account, according to a Dec. 20 News.com report, rather than in a controversial way like Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty"or Fox News' Megyn Kelly, who have both come under attack for their comments.

Curry took a more favorable position when talking about the spiritual leader and historical figure this month, which would please him immensely. She posted this as way of appreciation for the large financial gift she just received:

Thank you JESUS!"

The "good book" has been bandied about as the reason a leading personality in the most popular A&E television show made comments he did regarding the sin of homosexuality recently. So it is only fitting that the Bible be referenced in explaining why the Georgia lottery winner is crediting God's son with her huge windfall this week.

Luke 6:38 may best describe the blessing the Mega Millions winner has received given what her neighbors and others are saying about her. They say that she and her husband "have had big hearts long before they had deep pockets," according to the NY Daily News.

When you do a lot of good, some comes back in return," another neighbor said about the winning woman.

When a person's neighbors comments about their character lines up with what their family says, then you have the makings for a legitimate idea about who that person is to the people they interact with. And Ira Curry's sisters say the same positive things about her as those who live in her community. But right now they are more worried about the people who may not know Jesus, which is why both Jalunda Price Baker and her sister Brenda Baker fear for their life since their sister Ira won the Georgia lottery.
