Best Answer

The word originates from a High German, Dutch or Frisian term with an origin unknown to academics.


The word "luck" dates to the 15th century and comes from the Middle Dutch word "luc" (short for "gheluc"), which means "happiness" or "good fortune."

A Christian response:

No. The etymology of the word luck has nothing to do with Lucifer. Actually the dictionary defines luck as a chance happening of fortunate or adverse events.

However, as children of God, Christians do not believe that their lives are governed by chance. All experiences that Christians go through are according to a divine purpose. Therefore, to believe in luck means to believe in random chance; thus, eliminating the God influence in our daily lives.

Born-again Christians govern their lives according to the Holy Writ, which includes the word and concept of chance/luck:

Deuteronomy 22:6 If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, whether they be young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:

1 Samuel 6:9 And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that happened to us.

2 Samuel 1:6 And the young man that told him said, As I happened by chance upon mount Gilboa, behold, Saul leaned upon his spear; and, lo, the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Luke 10:31 And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

1 Corinthians 15:37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

That is the dictionary's definition. Ask God what His is. LUCK- Living Under Christs Kingship. God bless.

Does good luck mean Lucifer?

No. Lucifer, son of the morningThis is the only verse in the bible that mentions Lucifer. Although most Christians consider Lucifer to be Satan (the devil), there is little biblical justification for doing so. In this verse "Lucifer" refers to the king of Babylon (Nebuchadrezzar?) and Lucifer (the light bearer) is also called the "son of the morning" or morning star. The only other person that is referred to in that way is Jesus (Rev.22:16Lucifer means the (shining one. Hebrew)(the bringer of dawn. Greek)(light bearer.Latin) as used in Isa 14:12 which is talking about how Satan himself was cast from heaven.The verse Rev 22:16 reads "'I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to YOU people of these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star." So in conclusion lucifer does not mean good luck nor does it have any connection with the bright morning which Jesus is referred.
