Unlucky 13?

Flying back from the Methodist Church conference we noticed that the plane had no seats that were numbered 13. There was a number 12 and a number14, but no seat marked 13. That is quite interesting don't you think? It was not as if there was a gap in the seats, it just simply skipped out '13'. What would you make of this?
Do you believe in 'good luck' and 'bad luck?'
Do you think the airline was a little worried about having some seats marked with a 13 on them?

This is what Paul as to say about this...

Galatians 4:8-11 - "Earlier, before you knew God personally, you were enslaved to so-called gods that had nothing of the divine about them. But now that you know the real God—or rather since God knows you—how can you possibly subject yourselves again to those paper tigers? For that is exactly what you do when you are intimidated into scrupulously observing all the traditions, taboos, and superstitions associated with special days and seasons and years."

What do you think?

Living in Grace

I was thinking along the same lines about the signs that the end times are near an more and more people are trying to predict the last days...
I rest in the Word that says no one knows the day not even the Son nor the angels only the Father. I do believe we need to be ready at any time for Jesus' return.

Same applies to the being influenced by superstition and other peoples beliefs...

Live closer and closer to the Lord and your faith will increase and you will begin to trust Him in absolutely everything you encounter. He has a plan for us and its not to harm us but to have us prosper and give us hope for the future.

That pretty much helps me through each day and the reason i am not influenced by superstition and other peoples beliefs.
