The law of cause and effect tells us that our rewards in life will always be in exact proportion to our contributions. “Give and ye shall receive.” How simple the statement, yet how far reaching the law! We need to note what is clearly implied in the words, that what we give is to be given in return; not only that our giving is to find a response, but that it is to find a response in kind. How lightly has the world valued this great utterance! Nature is evenly balanced. We cannot disturb her equilibrium, for we know that the law of Cause and Effect is the unerring and inexorable law of nature; but we do fail to find our own equilibrium as nations, and as individuals, because we have not yet learned that the same law works inexorably in human life and in society as in nature-that what we sow, we must inevitably reap. Every act of our life is like a living seed, it produces after its own kind. No man is foolish as to think he can cheat nature. If he plants rice he does not expect to get potatoes; he knows that olive tree will not bear figs or the rosebush yield wheat. And yet we all imagine that we are cunning enough to cheat ourselves. We think we can act or speak in a certain manner and then go our way and forget it as though it had never been. But every act of life, however trivial, remains like the seed to sprout and grow, and produce influences whose far reaching effects can scarcely be dreamed. As you perform your daily task, render more and better service than that for which you are paid. When these acts of going the extra mile come back to you with compounded interest added, you will be glad that you did.
