Reading over the posts made me think of something my grandpa used to say back in the late 1950s (I have said the same thing to my two daughters time after time)...
"It don't cost anything to lock a door"
"we've gotta roll with the punches, learn to play all of our hunches

Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"

Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
If you do right, you never have to fear karma.
