Be Blessed, Not Lucky!


This Month, The R.O.C.K. Club Wants You to Understand the Difference

It’s March, and as spring approaches, The R.O.C.K. Club wants you to be blessed, not lucky! This month’s holiday is St. Patrick’s Day. Even if you aren’t Irish, you probably understand the day’s celebration. The holiday’s iconography includes shamrocks, leprechauns, and other representations of Irish tradition. Many will wish each other to have the “Luck O’ the Irish.” Luck, however, is not a real concept, though many believe in it. But God’s blessing is real. This month, let’s discuss the difference between luck and blessing, and why we all should want to have God’s blessing.

Don’t Search for Luck or Karma

There are many people who worry about their luck. You can hear it every day, as they wish each other “good luck.” Others may say, “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” What is luck? Luck is “good or bad things that happen to a person by chance, not by effort or abilities.” Though there are “accidents,” both good and bad, that happen in life, no corporeal concept of “luck” follows people around. Other people worry about karma. Karma is a Hindu and Buddhist belief that a person’s actions in this life and “past lives” will decide their fate in “future lives.” It states that karma will return to people later for things that they have done. While God teaches us in the Bible to “be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23), there really is no tangible representation of karma or luck that haunts people.  

When You Trust in God, You Can Be Blessed

Being blessed, however, is real. It is tangible. Blessing is simply God’s favor and protection. If you have trusted Jesus as your Savior, the Bible states that you are God’s child. You are a part of His family, and as such, you never have to worry about His blessing. Just like a father loves, protects, and provides for his kids, God will always care for His children, too.  The Bible tells us that if God cares for the lilies and sparrows, He will care much more for us. He always knows where you are, what you are doing, and how to take care of you. God may have to discipline us, just like a parent disciplines their child, but we will never lose His love. That is God’s blessing; it’s real, and it’s wonderful. And it’s so much better than luck! The R.O.C.K. Club in Radford, VA, offers outstanding and compassionate Christian child care and tutoring.
