“Karma” isn’t a term that is widely circulated in Christian circles. Though it may have Buddhist and Hindu origins, it has become a common term referring to the principle of “what goes around comes around”. In other words, what you sew will eventually come back to haunt or bless you. If you’re kind, kindness will come back to you, but if you’re mean, you will eventually reap that as well. Proverbs supports this principle in chapter 11 verse 24 when it says:
"One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty."
This just proves that often times we really do reap what we sew. Knowing this, we should sew what the bible encourages us to sew – things like love, forgiveness, and mercy. Because if we do, these things may be revisited back on us as well – yes from God, but also from our fellow man.
Proverbs supports the concept that we may reap what we sew. The example used refers to our giving nature – or lack thereof. “One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.” The bible is truth and I’ve seen this proverb play out in my life and in the lives of those I know. So, I believe that we, as believers, should really take it to heart.
