Governed by God, Not by Chance

When we experience good fortune, we may be tempted to think or say, "I certainly was lucky!" Others may voice this sentiment also. And conversely, when ill fortune seems our lot, we may say, "I just didn't have a chance" or "It just isn't my lucky day." Good-byes often end with someone saying, "The best of luck to you!"

It is rather humorous to see these casual remarks in print, for their absurdity becomes more poignant as we recognize them for what they are, namely, suggestions coming in the guise of our thinking as an explanation of some good or bad situation. It is just as humorous to see that from the same source come the temptations so brazenly placed before us to join in spectacular money giveaway programs.
