This is a topic that’s bugged me for awhile now.
Saying “good luck” to someone as a means of expressing support or solidarity with that person in a venture has bothered me as of late. Should we as Christians be saying it to begin with?
Yes, as Christians we affirm that all things are ordered to Gods plan and providence. We know nothing on earth or in heaven happens without the express allowance of God. I personally do not “believe” in good luck. But it’s a little catch phrase that I’ve been saying since I was a kid…it’s practically a knee jerk reaction to say to someone as they go for a job interview or are about to take a test or whatever.
By saying it we are saying, “I wish you the best”, or “Go get’m” or something like that. We do not mean to convey this arbitrary idea of luck to the person, we just want them to know we wish them the best.
What do you think? What do you say?
I’m undecided at the moment…..
