Actions or Intentions?

Actions or Intentions … 


Perhaps you are free of this or have no issues with it, but it’s an age-old twist on our thinking that causes a lot of us to become resentful, jealous, envious, or even bitter. 

We want people to judge us by our intentions while we choose to judge others by their actions. 


It’s another condition of being human. 


The solution is pretty simple. 

We must own this twist of thinking and correct it through our own actions and efforts and not our intentions. 


Think about it; are we able to see the results of others or our own intentions? 


I INTENDED to lose weight…. I INTENDED to get my college degree…. I INTENDED to be a better husband and father….. 


It carries no lasting effects. 


Only actions on our part bring the desired and needed results. … 


Check your experience. … 


“It is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and rest on our laurels.” Big Book pg. 85 


 Lord let us put actions behind our efforts to be better people, seeking Your will and not our own, AMEN. 


“let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18 


Have a blessed day Y’all!
