This story was shared to me by my breakfast buddy who's a boss dealing in house renovation and some minor construction works............. so the story goes.
He asked," Eugene, you are Christian right? and do you believe in ghost?" i told him i did believe in satan probably that could be the ghost that is synonymous to his type of ghosts then he asked me, was i afraid of ghost? i said why should i be because i' have my God. I asked him why he asked all this, then he shared.
" I received one job order the other day from my neighbor who happens to be a chruch going Christian and the owner asked me to start work tomorrow on some minor renovation and tomorrow to be the first day of the Chinese ghost festival, where the gate of hell will be open and the ghost roam freely.
So, i told my neighbor that i would start work tomorrow but then again she asked me to go and see her tonight itself and when i asked her why tonight................
She said she did not mean to ask me to start work officially but just to go to her house and clang clang here and clang clang there , make some noise to scare away the ghost before they come out tomorrow"
My friend was curious about it and asked me did we Christian practise some superstition as well and i was dumbfounded and i told him as far as i was concerned, i did not.
Note " Are you superstitious ?
P/S : I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me....Philipians 4:13
