Do you think if someone does something bad to some one, that it will come back at them, or if someone did something good to someone will it come back at them.

Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.

When I was young my dad kicked me out to be homeless. To him it was a game, the cops would bring me back home and two weeks later i would get kicked out again. Today he is homeless and no one will have anything to do with him. Not even his own mother. Trust me, even though I dont really like my dad it was heart breaking to see he was gonna have the same happen to him. I do not enjoy it at all.

when you do good, dont be expecting anything in return. If you expect something, you may be disappointed. It will come back to you but maybe just not when or how you think.

It depends on whether there is repentance or not.

This sounds like you're talking about 'karma', but we Christians don't believe in Karma because it is a closed system where every debt has to be paid.

We have Jesus and Jesus is the only one who can write those debts off.

I've observed (in my personal life) that if a Christian does something bad to someone it does come back at them in one way or another, and that if they do something good for someone with a caring heart without expecting anything in return, they are blessed in one way or another.

I believe His will will be done, not in karma.

Bad or good you get rewarded.  In this life and in the next.  This is why when I do good deeds or go out of my way to do good I know it's like an investment that eventually shows up back up to me

The very basis of Christianity is that we get what we don't deserve, and don't get what we deserve.

 

We all deserve punishment for our sins. None of us deserve blessings. Based on our sins, we all deserve hell.  But, Jesus died for our sins, and for those who receive this free gift, gives us the best blessings, and we did not deserve, or could earn any of that. It is a gift from God.

 

As far as everyday occurences, we go thru times of trial, which God uses for our benefit.  

 

Romans 8:28

And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
 
So, Christians don't get what we deserve, and we get what we don't deserve.

Sin has built-in consequences.   You reap what you sow in this life, generally speaking.    You don't have to be born into another existence to reap the consequences of sin.

Interestingly, the Bible does not say any such thing.  We are informed that God makes it rain on the good and the bad....we are not rewarded for being the good guy here.

 

I agree that we will reap what we sow because the Bible says that we do...

 

We are told to pray for those who use us and love our enemies....there is no reward system in place

 

We usually suffer the consequences of our sins...which is why God tells us to avoid sin...

 

basically in agreement with post 8, Qnts and Shiloh post 9
