Read Luke 6:27-36

Karma is defined by definition.com as the cosmic principle according to which each person is rewarded or punished in one incarnation according to that person’s deeds in the previous incarnation.

I hear this so often from non-believers and believers. Believe it or not, karma is not a Christian belief.

God is about justice. He is about perfect justice. He is the one who instituted eye for an eye, and also who sent Jesus to die for our sins.

Never once does he say you are rewarded or punished for your deeds. Your sinful actions deserve death. It doesn’t matter how much good you balance it with, you cannot earn salvation by claiming karma.

Good actions do not necessarily bring fortune and bad actions do not always result in bad consequences on earth, or in the afterlife.

What Jesus does preach is that we are to do good with no expectation of good return. We are called to be different, to be better than the world around us.

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that.” – Luke 6:33-34

So go and treat others how you want to be treated NO MATTER HOW THEY HAVE TREATED YOU. In this the world will know you are different, set apart, In Christ.

“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” – Luke 6:31
