What We Do Comes Back

Many Christians do not realize that what we do comes back to us.

If we think good thoughts for and about others, we actually strengthen ourselves.

If we criticize and find fault with others, we weaken ourselves.

1 Corinthians 10:10: Nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.

For as we "do unto others" so do we do unto ourselves.

This is the Universal law that God set into motion.

So while we have absolute free will, everything we do automatically has consequences upon the world and, eventually, upon us.

God's time is infinity, so we may not see the consequence of our actions right away.

Also, because we are used to cause and effect being discrete and distinct events that are very close together (you put the pot on the stove and the water boils within moments or you hit your thumb with the hammer and the pain is instantaneous) we can miss the fact that something happening now is the consequence of what we have been doing over time.

Therefore, when problems begin to surface, do not look to see whom you can blame.

That is something that a child does.

Instead, quiet your mind, sit and send God love for five minutes and ask to understand what part you have played and what you can do to make things right.

For you are part of everything and effect it for good or ill.

1 Corinthians 13:11-12:

When I was a child, I spoke as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
