When Your Heart Allows Intent to Lead to Action

September 19, 2016

Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim
when it is in your power to do it for him.
Say not to your neighbor, “Go, and come again,
tomorrow I will give,” when you can give at once. (Proverbs 3:27-28)

Procrastinate lately? How much more “good” could we do if we did it right away, right when we thought of it? If we were judged on intent alone, we would be awesome “givers.” However, we often do not move beyond intent.

If someone needs prayers, be deliberate in praying for them.

If someone needs financial support and you are able to provide that support, do it.

If someone is in need of your time, do your best to make yourself available…even if it means putting off doing something for yourself. (Or as I tell myself, even if it is during a Colts game.)

Great things happen when your heart allows intent to lead to action.
