Galatians 6 – Karma?


“What goes around comes around.” That’s the mantra of many members of society. What does the Bible say about it?

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith
Galatians 6:7-10

So does the Bible support the idea of karma? God does bless us for performing good acts, and the bad things we do will not go unpunished either.

Be sure your sin will find you out.
Numbers 32:23

You Reap What You Sow

But the Bible takes the concept of karma to a whole new level. Rather than a simple “good deeds cause good deeds, and bad deeds cause bad deeds,” Paul uses the illustration of sowing (planting) seeds. When we plant seeds of sinful, even lustful desires, it corrupts us further. When we plant seeds of the Spirit, we gain eternal life. Paul teaches us that every action we do, every thought we think, every word we say affects our eternal destiny.

What would you like your eternal destiny to be? Would you like to live into eternity? The choice is yours! Let’s ask Jesus to come into our lives so that He can shape us into who He wants us to be, and who He knows we’ll be happiest being.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20

In Christ Alone,
