I don’t do luck.
I don’t do karma.
I don’t avoid black cats.
I don’t believe that bad things come in threes.
I don’t need a wooden surface to knock on when having a conversation.
And, I walk under ladders.
These feeble, superstitious attempts to control outcomes are man-made.
Instead, I will pray fervently for you,
I will encourage you to play hard in your game, practice, or meet.
I will hope for clarity of mind as you take a test, give a speech, audition, or perform.
I will cheer you on as you continue this journey of life. But I won’t be throwing salt over my right shoulder (or left shoulder), crossing my fingers, looking for four-leaf clovers, or carrying a rabbit’s foot.
No, I don’t do luck.
I do faith in God Alone.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your path straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
