Friday the 13th – unlucky or lucky day!


Today is Friday the 13th and superstition holds that when the thirteenth day of the month falls on a Friday (Friday the 13th), it is often accompanied with luck (usually bad).
There are many roots to the etymology of this superstition, and your guess could be as good as mine in determining its exact origin, however one theory subscribes to the thought that this term came about as a derivative of “the Last Supper” of the Lord Jesus Christ with his twelve (12) disciples, making the number 13 in toto. before He was crucified on that following Friday (commonly known today as Good Friday).

Whether there is any verity in this theory or not is immaterial. But what matters is that while Friday the 13th may seem to the world as being an unlucky day (as evident in Hollywood’s production of horror movies associated with Friday the 13th), we can deem this to be in fact our lucky day; where, because of one Friday, on which 13 members gathered around a table (The Last Supper), God could reconnect with us (sinful men and women), by allowing His Only Begotten Son (Jesus Christ) to die on the Cross.

Point(s) to Ponder:

  1. If you do NOT know, Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, then let today (Friday the 13th) become your lucky day to reconnect with God, by believing that Jesus is the Christ (Savior).
  2. If you know, Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, then let today (Friday the 13th) be your lucky day as any other day.
