Exodus 23:19 19 “Bring the best of the firstfruits of your soil to the house of the Lord your God.  “Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk. (NIV)

To understand this verse, we must know what it means about cooking a young goat in its mother’s milk.  In those days, when a woman seemed to be infertile, they had a superstition that cooking a young goat in its mother’s milk would make them fertile.  It never did.  It was a superstition.  We have many superstition’s today.  Some don’t like the number 13.  Some think they must throw salt over their shoulder.  Some think breaking a mirror means 7 years bad luck.  This scripture is telling us not to have superstitions.  Luck doesn’t control our lives.  Superstitions are nothing more than false beliefs some people try to hold on to.  We all need to believe in something.  There is only one thing to believe that really matters and is the real truth.  The belief God is in control of our lives and all that is around us.  We are not to look anywhere else but to God.  He is the only One Who can and will supply all our needs.  Next time you’re tempted to repeat a superstition, remember the One Who is in charge and express your need to Him
