Lucky Number 7

The Number 7 has various meanings attached to it. Here are a few posted by a reader on Lucky Mojo.com: "The 7 days of the week, the 7 sabbatical years, the 7 years of famine, the 7 years of plenty, the 7 years occupied in the building of King Solomon's Temple, and especially the 7 liberal arts and sciences."

I’ve been searching the internet looking for the reasons as to why No. 7 was always considered Lucky Number Seven. According to http://www.seiyaku.com there are several meanings but I’ll just post a few here. Site’s not much, but it does give some insightful information about the number 7:  “For the Seven Deadly Sins, there are Seven Contrary Virtues. There are also medieval instructions for helping others, giving us the Seven Corporal Works of Mercy.There are lots of other sevens too. Initially there were seven Stations of the Cross and there are Seven Sacraments. Seven appears in the Bible much more frequently than other numbers. For example, many times people asked Jesus who He was, and in reply, Jesus compared Himself to different things to help us understand. The Gospel of John records seven of these: the Seven I ams.”
Interesting. Enjoy!
