God’s negative reciprocals.
Dear reader, you may not believe this story I am about to tell you, but it is true. One day in the village where I grew up I was about 14 years and I attended a meeting where a young man of about 17 years of age falsely accused a local priest. This young man got some payment from this priest for land he had sold on behalf of the young man, but the young man denied in this meeting that he never received this payment. The priest was so much embarrassed in this meeting because everyone believed this young man. With a lot of grief on his heart the priest said: “All right, God was my witness, and he will judge you“. Then the meeting ended. About fifteen years later a prominent businessman was assassinated in our village. The family of this businessman failed to identify the killers until they falsely accused the man who fifteen years ago had falsely accused the village Priest! As a result of this false accusation this now grown up man spent one and half years on remand in prison! The judge set him free after realizing that he had been falsely accused! This is what this article is all about. God’s law of negative reciprocals.
Laws of the physical world.
The world we live in has its own physical laws that govern everything you do. A very good example is the Law of gravity.
God’s laws of negative reciprocals.
The laws of negative reciprocals say that when you do something bad, it will come back to haunt you in one way or another. Let us start with a very good example. The Law of the sword. Jesus said that when you kill someone with a sword, you will also die by the sword (Mathew 26:52).
When you cheat your spouse, you will also be cheated in one way or another. If your spouse does not cheat on you, then someone may sleep with your young daughters.
When you steal something, do not complain when you find out that one of your workers, or a thief has stolen your property because it will be God’s law of reciprocals at work.
When you malice someone be prepared for malice to descend on you or your children in one way or another.
When you sabotage someone then be prepared for your life or that of your children to be sabotaged in one way or another
What God wants us to do.
God wants us to treat others like we want them to treat us. Listen to what the written Word of God says:
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Mathew 7:12.
