You really don’t reap what you sow
Most people feel that if you do something bad or hurt someone that Karma is going to get you. They say things like “Karma is a b#$@*.” They feel like Karma is the great judge with a gavel in hand ready to dish out vengeance and justice to those that have done wrong, especially those that have wronged them. We have a tendency to judge ourselves with mercy and on our intentions, but we judge others harshly and by their actions.
We should not judge. We do not have to reap everything we have sown, we can reap mercy and grace and forgiveness. It has been written that if someone hurts you, you should treat them with kindness and in doing so, you will heap hot coals on their head.
Some people think that the hot coals are a way that God or Karma uses to punish the offender. But in the times that this was written, the hot coals were a sacred ritual and a symbol for forgiveness and prayer. The prayer was that of an intercessor. An intercessor is someone that pleads the case of the guilty person, an attorney, an arbiter a go-between a mediator a referee a fixer a middleperson. So instead of us casting judgement and hoping for justice and vengeance we should stand in the gap of the one that suffered us wrong and pray for mercy and kindness to come their way.
I don’t believe that God or Karma or the universe or the Earth ever gives us bad things. As it is written “the Earth is full of His Glory and every good and perfect gift cometh down from the Father of lights!” These good things are given to us as seeds. Seeds of love, prosperity, happiness, kindness, faith, hope, faithfulness and every other good attribute. These seeds grow into the fruit of the Spirit when they are watered with His word and love.
What about all the bad stuff? When we are negative or when we resist the Spirit of goodness and mercy and faith, this negativity creates a barrier around us. This barrier prevents all the good seeds from coming into our heart and growing into abundance. Plus the negative-ness creates and plants negative seeds in our hearts and then they grow into undesired fruit. Like hate, murder, doubt, poverty, jealousy, envy, strife, anger, depression and every other negative attribute.
These bad seeds are really just our positive God given Spirit and attributes perverted. Fear is just faith in the wrong things. Faith believes that something positive and good is here even when we can’t see it yet. Fear believes that something negative and bad is here even if we can’t see it yet and even before it happens. Hate is love in the wrong thing, greed is desire perverted.
Our negatives attitude creates a barrier that keeps all the good that the world and universe has to offer us and then traps our own negative perverted seeds within us, germinating an undesirable unhappy life. Our positive attitude allows The Great Unseen to shower our life with His seeds and His love in our hearts that will grow into a desirable happy life that is by design not default!
