“Good Luck = Bad Theology” or “Little Things Matter Most” or “It Is Always The Mouth” or “GodSpeed vs. GoodLuck.

“And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”  (Matthew 12:36 & 37)

 

Words…Words and Words.

Words matter. Every little thing matters to God. So we, too should care about the little things. It is written, that God Is Holy and His people must be holy, too. Like likes Like; the deep calleth to the deep and the shallow calls the shallow.

Good luck…What doth it really mean when a person says it?  Are they invoking some spirit that will do the person’s bidding? Good luck is not something a Christ-ian should say. When a Christ-ian wants to send a loved one off with a blessing they should say, “Godspeed” but never Good Luck. One may say, ” Grace be unto thee,” but not Good Luck.

In saying, Good Luck, one is essentially taking whatever it is, out of God’s Hand and giving it to chance. Our Lord used the words, “by chance” only once, as He was speaking to persons on their level. The Greek word is “Concurrence.”

Also, we are told by James that we ought not to say, we will do this or that on this day or that day. Instead, we should say, God willing, we will do this or that on this day or that day.

Words matter very much to God.

Godspeed to you all.
