I'll take the blessings

Luck or blessings? With luck you get good luck and bad luck—not a lot of surety. And blessings—well, have you ever heard of a bad blessing? 

Proverbs 10:22 says, “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” And The Message presents this passage as “God’s blessing makes life rich; nothing we do can improve on God.” In the lead piece of this issue, Rosalinda Johnson points out that with luck someone wins and someone loses, but “a blessing is something that everyone can share.” She talks of how blessings are “God in action to which we respond” (p. 4). And in an article that addresses perhaps the most obvious form of how the lure of “luck” tries to trap us, Curtis Ray Brown tells how he was able to gain freedom from a gambling addiction (p. 6).
