There is a law that is paramount in life, many people call it the law of karma, others refer to it as the law of sowing and reaping, the bible particularly mentioned it in 'Galatians 6:7-9' kjv Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Hmmmm very interesting and this connects to my title 'doing the needful'. A further explanation to this law means that it is automatic, and does not need mechanical or human judgement. In reference to this same law I often come across people say 'do your best and heaven will take care of the rest'. Literally, we are in control of our actions but the reward is from above. So care must be taken in most judgement, we should always trace the intention behind every action, a pure selfless action has no strings attached. So doing the needful means doing the best and expecting the best outcome. Nothing happens out of nothing, in physics we are told for every action, there is a reaction which could be assume to be the result for the action. Action, and efforts determines the results. Let us not expect to reap where we did not sow. In conclusion in our family lives, workplace, friendship, while working on steemit always do the needful so you can achieve a positive result.
