“You can thank your lucky stars you didn’t get hurt!” “With luck like mine there won’t be a parking place, and I’m late already!”
Imagine this from Paul: “If my luck changes, I’ll be out of jail by next spring.”
Instead he said, “For I know that this shall turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ . . .” (Philippians 1:19).
Or this from James: “I’m sorry to hear you’re down on your luck”?
Instead: “Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance” (James 1:2).
The thinking behind our speech
Christians believe that God, not luck, is the source of blessings (James 1:17).
Does our language betray us?
Christians aren’t lucky; they’re blessed!
