You may or may not be familiar with Earl, so for those of you who have never watched it, you can find Earl on NBC. He’s been on TV for about 2 years now. In each and every episode he goes through and tries to right some wrong that he had committed earlier in his life. This has led him to do such things as reuniting family members, giving away massive amounts of cash, and just being a general do gooder.


Sounds like someone that we would love to have as a member of our congregation at first. That’s really until you hear Earl’s story. Earl J. Hickey was probably the most despicable person that you had ever met right up until a particular day at a quickie mart when he stole five dollars from someone and bought a lottery ticket with it. That lottery ticket ended up being a winning ticket for $100,000 dollars. Elated, Earl walked out into the street outside the quickie mart, and was promptly hit by a car. He woke up in the hospital, without the $100,000 dollars, and in a lot of pain with really only his brother Randy and a random hotel maid to really care for him.


After getting out of the hotel room, Earl has a bit of an Ebenezer Scrooge moment. His life flashes before his eyes and he decides that he knows why the car hit him. He begins to imagine why he ended up in the hospital, and he can come up with only one answer – “karma”. Now technically “karma” is a much bigger concept, but to Earl, and to most of us it all means the same thing – “what goes around, comes around.” See Earl has decided that since he’s been such a horrible guy in the past, that’s why he’s cursed with bad luck in the present.
