Proverbs 11:27 (NKJV) — 27 He who earnestly seeks good finds favor, But trouble will come to him who seeks evil.
Why good things happen to good people. A person who sincerely and diligently seeks to do right will find favor with God and humans, but if a person is intent on evil, it will come back to him. This verse states another form of the law of sowing and reaping. Every deed is a seed that will potentially produce a harvest.
Special note: This proverb does not guarantee that those who seek good will never suffer. If you have questions about this, you may want to see my book If God Loves Me, Why Am I Hurting?
