In reading Proverbs today, it’s hard to deny that the writer was a Calvinist. He believed in a sovereign, powerful God who ruled over everything from great to small.
“The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord” (Prov. 16:33).
In ancient cultures, using dice or other forms of RNG was viewed as a way to let God, through his providence, speak to a situation. Sometimes you just need to make a decision, and leaving the decision up to God’s providence is hardly worse than our feeble wisdom.
Take a moment to consider this more carefully by spending a few minutes in devotional thought and prayer on God’s great care and control over all.
