Phrase pet peeve
Maybe I am writing on something that does not bother most of you...it has been bothering me...
I have a problem with Christians that say "Good-luck" to anyone and ESPECIALLY each other.
Recently I was in a situation where this phrase was repeated to several Christians that were about to set out on some life changing experiences. They felt the Lord was leading them. It just twisted in my heart when the person sent them off ONE by one with the phrase"Good luck"....to me this reeks of superstition. Would it not just be so easy to say, I (we) will pray for you, or many other exhorting phrases that we use. I see them everyday in blogland. I do not believe personally, that this phrase should be any part of a Christians vocabulary. It seems, shallow and so worldly. I don't know if this is just me....what do you all think?..am I just being to picky? I personally do not want this said to me. Please I want God's guidance and God's will....not a life left up to "LUCK" ?
