It is a topic often discussed with like-minded people. Does it matter how you treat other people? Should I give back good to the good that is given me, or does it matter if I give back evil for the good that is given unto me? This subject is contemplated throughout many interactions with people whom we know harbor no good will to other people. What should be our course of action then?
First, it matters how you return treatment of others in kind which could answer whether your life sees constant success or consistent failure. The notion that a human being can go around doing whatever they want whether good or bad, and the consequences resulting aren’t tied to behavior is ludicrous!
A boss ignores a solid employees’ work performance by choosing to give an open position, which the employee put in a fair application, could be thought of as disloyal to a loyal employee. I know you’re thinking the boss has the right to promote whom he or she wants. Does he really? A worker proven should be selected first. That is the good that will come back to you. An unknown commodity could work a day, week or a month and quit (or not show up at all!). That is the evil returned to you when you should have chosen the employee that applied for the job!
Families interacting daily in a close-knit tribal like setting. Good should be flowing back and forth and swirling around from floor to ceiling within that home. Try if you want introducing evil by not giving well for the good that is given you in your home and see what results. That new job you wanted is filled. The money you’ve been saving is eaten by an emergency. An illness befalls you and you miss a week of work.
Ask yourself, are you returning evil in your life for the good bestowed upon you by nice people? Let me be clear. You are not going to be successful long term by interchanging evil for the good that comes your way! Stop blaming the world for your faulty wiring and change your central processing unit! Something is not right in how your thinking leads you to believe you can do all the wrong in the world, and only right and good things will come back to you.
Quit behaving as if lying, rudeness or acting like everyone owes me and I don’t need to say thank you. A person will attract good if their heart tends to goodness. If your heart tends to mischief, then you will certainly receive mischief in-kind. Simple is it not, how life can be explained.
