Do good things really happen to good people?
From a non-secular stand point, do good things happen to good people?
In the span of about a year I've seen crushing things happen to 3 of the most kind hearted, genunine human beings I've known. On Friday, I looked into the eyes of my friend who's wife was just diagnosed with terminal cancer and I saw true hopelessness for the first time in my life and it was scary. If any good Karma was due anyone, it was him.
Why do the losers and dredge of society have countless opportunities and good fortune, while those who truly have hearts of gold are wronged. Perhaps it's not always like that, but lately it seems the path of the righteous man is the wrong path. So does good fortune return on those who are good, or should we just be looking out for #1?
I don't mean to sound like I'm expecting reward for doing something good - but I guess I did expect for the ball to bounce in favor of good people more so than the bad.... perhaps not?
