"… there is no such thing as nothing."

A Short, Post Saint Patrick’s Day Lesson

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Saturday, March 18, 2017

If you’ve ever heard any Xian pop songs, you may have heard the line “I don’t believe in luck, I believe in Jesus.” Or, maybe you’ve heard someone say something like, “I’m not lucky, I’m blessed.” The idea is that, for the Christian, luck has no role in their life. Simply put, that’s not only bad theology, it’s contrary to Scripture itself.

“I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.”
Ecclesiastes 9:11

Chance… another word for luck. So, Ecclesiastes, the greatest book of wisdom in the Bible, written by Solomon, the wisest man in the Bible, tells us that luck is a part of our lives. How utterly fascinating.
