Reap What You Sow...

I don't believe in the "Karma" context exactly but in "You Reap What You Sow" context.

The Bible itself talks about it in Galatians 6:7b "...for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap." It also talks about malice backfiring; spite boomerangs in Proverbs 26:27 "If a man digs a pit, he will fall into it; if a man rolls a stone, it will roll back on him." and last but not least; evil doers are always exposed like in Proverbs 26:26 "His malice may be concealed by deception, but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.

I have reaped what I sowed many time before and when it struck me I was able to recognize my error, repent, learn from my mistake & not commit such thing again. Im not scared of "Karma" but it suck being paid back for the wrong I did even though I well deserve it.

I saw on the news that this guy wanted to injure some other man to teach him a lesson & ended up being injured himself with his own weapons he was going to use. BACKFIRE! Many times "Karma" can be as little as not trusting someone anymore because they betrayed you or (a personal one for me) not talking to someone because of they way they treat me. If u are going to treat me like **** Im not going to treat u the same but there will be other consequences and those consequence will be me being distant and quiet toward u so that u wont hurt me even though I forgive u.

My question though, as someone who personally has seen Karma really tear into someone, is it right for us to admire the work Karma does sometimes?

Honestly, would it be bad Karma to see how naturally occuring Karma affects the person who performed the Bad Karma on us and be glad that it did?

I personally ask God to forgive the person who hurt me and to not repay them the same way they did me wrong. but i ask that God show them the wrong they did to me so that they may ask God for forgiveness. i wouldnt rejoice though it is sweet to see them reap what they sowed but we all make mistakes and need to leard how to forgive. when i wrote this it was to remind myself to not do evil to others because it will come back to me. evil backfires. & that is how we built character.

I agree. Thank you for reminding me. I shall do the same because that is why they put erasers on pencils. We all make mistakes.

Yes that is right & u welcome :)

For every action, there is a reaction. For everything you do have a consequence. I've learned my lessons in a hard way, and this is still a learning process. Thank you for the enlightenment.

Every day is a learning experience, but only the wise and the strong accepts it's teachings and yes you are right every action does have a reaction and a consequence.
