If I believed in karma

If I believed in karma...

would my dearest friend be having a tumor removed today?
would I have been rear-ended on my way to visit folks at the hospital?
would that same car I took to trade in, have stopped running on my way back home from the car dealer?
would I be calling a tow truck?
would I have won a new car, when I rolled up the Tim Horton's rim of my tea cup?

Scripture says in Matthew 5:43-45

43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies[b] and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

If karma was what folks hoped it was - no kind, good, or caring person in this world would ever face any bad, hard or impossible situation. Good and bad happen to good and bad alike...

but some days I wish all the bad would be gone forever. Especially for my friend in the hospital.
