While this is not an example based on faith, you can see how it does affect the things we do in our daily lives.

Can you picture him in Mary’s stomach on the way to Bethlehem kicking to get attention and then saying “Um…mom….we need to hurry up and get there or this whole God’s son thing is not going to turn out so good…” I kid, but you can definitely see the point. Pure coincidence you say!? Well then let’s take a look at the day of crucifixion. On this one day, Jesus fulfilled nearly 30 prophecies about his life and death. Here is a list of some of them and a somewhat tongue-in-cheek humorous look of each.
