What goes around, comes around.
I was riding my bicycle back from the gym tonight and saw a White Tail doe and her two small fawns (a new group I hadn’t seen before) wanting to cross the road. I stopped about 30 yards away so that she would feel comfortable enough to signal them to follow. As they started to cross, a big diesel pickup truck came barreling down the hill and looked like he was trying to hit them or scare them. One of the fawns turned back, and then changed his mind and followed his mother. That one missed being hit by less than 20 feet.
It got me thinking about the disregard for life of the helpless in our society. People eat huge quantities of cheap meat from animals raised and killed inhumanely on industrial farms. Millions of unborn children are murdered every year, because adults are unable to take responsibility for their actions.
I’m a firm believer in Karma. We are aren’t punished for our sins, but by them. If we make life cheap, then our lives become cheap too.
Proverb 12:10, “A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.”
