Luck

From Blog10


When a nation trusts in luck
Or in happy-thinking pluck,
It is "running out of luck."

When it thanks its lucky stars
(Maybe Jupiter and Mars),
It will soon have yet more scars.

Those with eyes begin to sense
After all the evidence,
Luck's a sham for Providence.


The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the Lord.

--Proverbs 16:33 ESV

I've never believed in luck. I like how you said it was a sham for Providence.

Thanks. I sort of cringe every time someone wishes me good luck. I appreciate their good wishes, but wish they understood and accepted and trusted in the Lord's providence.
