My wife and I love Andrea’s musical librettos talents. However, I believe his belief that chance and luck is not part of I the game in life is not entirely true because…

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Andrea Bocelli’s from litigation to liberates paid off, reported his following statement.

“Chess playing concurred my clear conviction that nothing in the world happens by chance. And luck same as chess, is not part of the game.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate two ancient wisdom verses to explain why Andrew’s comment in not entirely true, in my opinion.

King Solomon

I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11)

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps. (Proverb 16:9)

What’s My Point?

The article contains references to chess, discipline, and heart, all components in that lead to success in life regardless of luck.

 The majority of King Solomon wisdom verses, based on his observations in life, basically agree with Andrea except for luck and the belief that the Lord has something to do with the steps taken in Andrea’s life.

In My Opinion

I believe most everyone in life will experience coming in contact with a person described in the King Solomon Ecclesiastes verse in their lifetime.

As for the belief in human hearts and the Lord, in my opinion, anyone taught to understand and obtain knowledge that leads to the wisdom and love teachings in the Bible, will come to know in their hearts they have been blessed with luck to be best prepared to win in the games of life and after death.
