There is a TV show called Earl, that has Earl believing in Karma. He thinks that what happens to him is the result of his previous actions. Karma is a religious concept originating in India and is found in many Eastern religions. Some believe that they will be reincarnated and depending on their Karma they will come back in a higher or lower life form.
The concept of sowing and reaping is in the Bible.
Gal 6:7  Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
Gal 6:8  For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Gal 6:9  And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up
Do not believe in reincarnation, but do believe in the new birth. We are to be born again of God, by faith in Jesus Christ. The soul will continue with the spirit in the presence of God or if the sins are not forgiven by God, through Jesus Christ, the soul is cast into hell, a place of everlasting separation from God, a place of torment. The results of our actions and belief in Jesus Christ  results in a better life now for us and for all eternity. After death there is no second chance, so come to Jesus for forgiveness of sin now.
This message resulted from reading in the book of Judges.
Jdg 1:5  They found Adoni-bezek at Bezek and fought against him and defeated the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
Jdg 1:6  Adoni-bezek fled, but they pursued him and caught him and cut off his thumbs and his big toes.
Jdg 1:7  And Adoni-bezek said, "Seventy kings with their thumbs and their big toes cut off used to pick up scraps under my table. As I have done, so God has repaid me." And they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there.
Removing the big toes and thumbs makes one dependent on others. Hands and feet are meant for work. I might add that those who will not work who have hands and feet, they are dependant on those who do work. Politically,  Socialism will run out of money as everyone becomes dependant on government and no one works. It is better to use our hands and feet to be productive. for our own needs and for the needs of others.
In the law of Moses, the ear, toe and thumb were anointed with blood as an act of consecration, to make one a holy servant.

Lev 8:22  And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
Lev 8:23  And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron's right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

The blood of the Lamb of God has made us his holy servants.
(VS 1) Oh, be careful little ears, what you hear (repeat)
For the Father Up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little ears
what you hear.
(VS 4) Oh, be careful little hands, what you do (repeat),
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little hands
What you do

(VS 5) Oh, be careful little feet where you go (repeat)
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little feet,
Where you go.
