Clowney: Christians and luck

Sunday, June 28, 2009
    Feast of Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, Teacher, Martyr, c.200

    God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.
    —Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)

    Too many Christians still live with crossed fingers, sweating out their good luck as a portent of calamity. To see them, you would never guess that God’s good pleasure, and not the goddess of fate, rules human destiny.
    ... Edmund P. Clowney (1917-2005)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my life is always in Your hands.
