Many people think that being sincere and having good intentions in what you do is enough. May I hasten to say that sincerity and good intentions is not enough because you can be sincere but sincerely wrong. Even Saul of the New Testament who later became Paul was sincere when he persecuted the Church. Furthermore even today we have Church folks who operate with sincerity and good intentions but are sincerely falling into the same trap. I call it the trap of good intentions. Needless to mention a modern proverb that says, ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions’. How many people have found themselves on the wrong side of the law or lost their integrity in the name of sincerity and good intentions? May we learn from the model of the sons of Issachar (1 Chron. 12:32). They were men who understood the times and what Israel ought to do. May your actions be determined by UNDERSTANDING WHAT OUGHT TO BE DONE IN LINE WITH GOD’S WILL. With all thy getting, get understanding (Prov. 4:7).
SINCERITY AND GOOD INTENTIONS IS NOT ENOUGH
