Lessons are blessings!
It's a womans prerogative to change her mind!
Last week I spoke to a new person and we were quickly becoming freinds! She is a very gentle soul and also loves humor to deal with her days of stress. In conversation this beautiful person has just informed me that her roomate stole the rent money. My heart went out deeply to her and I was inquiring what she was going to do about this. She said she was going to let God handle it and that karma would catch up to her. That sounds very much like me , however I suggested something I personally have never done myself......I said you should pawn her things! Then pay the rent. She said no that she would just move! I was livid at the stranger that forced this nice lady to have to move and be stressed so badly.
I prayed about it...thought about it ....and what I came up with is..................why should we be so passive as to ask God...beg God to send bad things to others. Is that not in itself wrong?? Would it not be better to teach people that there are consequences to bad actions? Would they not be better off as a person to know they will surely get it if they continue this terrible pattern??
All in all I know that to be pro-active is more difficult for some and to wait for karma is a silent pleasure! That is no lesson to become anothers blessing ! For when karma strikes there will always be a victim asking what did I do wrong and always someone around that will tell them that they had not done a thing wrong. Then no lesson was taught and many people hurt .....
My idea today ........God will have the final say yes..........until then we are all responsible to help others and show others.......sometimes that means showing them how they wronged you and to make sure that the punishment fits the crime. OK I was wrong to suggest pawning her belongings........but to have her arrested for stealing is not . Maybe then next time...there won't be a next time. Maybe saving her from the wrath of hell from someone else that is not so kind or patient with a thief!
I do find comfort in knowing that I don't have to settle all scores of injustice and that God will handle this in time.......However I get great satisfaction when I am personally wronged....when they get a lesson.....and yes I hope it someday becomes their blessing too!!
