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 the INTENTIONS of others as well as ourselves? How do we measure or show that?
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...

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