    The first thing I would do is pay off all my debts. Student loans, car, house, etc. Not the most exciting answer, I know, but I think that getting rid of all my debts would bring some peace of mind.

    After screaming at the top of my lungs and passing out for a brief period, the next thing I would do is go on the trip of a lifetime, followed by buying my dream home and writing a few cheques to my favourite charities :-)

    Give 10% to my Church, Pay off debts and buy a new car for my Wonderful Dad.

    Then, book an exotic holiday for me and my friends and while on the beach, work out how I'll spend the rest. smile

    Give the Lord His tithe and then give an offering of thanks.  I would then pay off all of my debt.  Buy my family a home and then put the rest in an high yielding account of some kind.  And Yes, I would take a vacation ... I would love to go to Israel or Greece.

    Pay off all my debts and then the debts of my close friends. Well, I suppose technically the first thing I do is scream the roof off the house in joy and amazement that my money worries are over..

    But, you know what I mean wink

    First thing I would do is think about who would benefit the most from it at that moment, and then I will be happy for them...

    1. Set-up a Foundation Trust to Handle all the Business Affairs to include paying off Bills Due
    2. Build my Church to receive all God's Children from all walks of life to Nurture them not by just the feeding on certain days. But by removing them from the affliction of living in the Streets
    3. Bring up other small Churches struggling with the same ideas but have no Grants or Government supports
