Superstition, more common then you think

You know the saying, ‘Red sky at night means fair weather tomorrow; red sky in the morning means foul weather all day.’ You know how to interpret the weather signs in the sky, but you don’t know how to interpret the signs of the times-Matthew 16:2&3 NLT

Superstition is a routine part of some of our lives more so than we might even realize. How so? Phrases like "you will have bad luck on Friday the 13th"; "I dreamed about fish last night, so someone must be pregnant" and or "if your right hand is itching you will receive money" have implemented their way into our lives, rather being placed there as we've grown up or picked up along the way. Nonetheless we've all recited and believed one superstition or another at some point in time.

Legendary recording artist Stevie Wonder even made a song about superstition. His song was so popular that it was number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1973. Steve Wonder's song superstition is a one my favorites and has a great message hidden in the chorus. The chorus recites as follows: when you believe in things that you don't understand, then you suffer. I'd like to translate that into when you believe in things other than Christ you pay the price. A perfect example of this is shown in 1 Kings 18:18-39 particularly in verses 26-29 (they called on the name of Baal from morning till noon. “Baal, answer us!” they shouted. But there was no response; no one answered).

Superstition (an IRRATIONAL belief that an object, action, or circumstance not logically related to a course of events influences its outcome) just the opposite of the belief in Christ!
