“Like a dog that returns to its vomit is a fool who repeats his folly” (Proverbs 26:11).
I’m sometimes asked if I believe in “karma” or “luck.” No, what I believe in are statistical probabilities based upon predictable patterns. That is, a disciplined consistency of right choices, coupled with a plan of unceasing preparation toward a desired goal, creates the greater chance of favorable outcomes. Whereas, a life characterized by indiscriminate randomness, recklessness, and undisciplined decision-making has the greater probability of unwanted results. That’s not “karma;” “good luck,” or “bad luck.” It’s a providential principle.
