Do It With Intention

Some people make things happen, some watch it happen, and some wonder what happened.

Twisted history of attributions

Have you noticed how many people seem to drift through life. Things happen to them. They may blame others or outside forces. They may pray, but those prayers may be reactions, futile, mere stirring of the air.

Some people do things with intention. The commit in their minds to do something. They may succeed; they may fail. The outcome doesn’t matter. The causation string of desire —>intention (commitment)—>action makes all the difference.

This matters to our own spiritual formation. It matters to the service we provide to others and the world.

When you pray, pray with intention.

When you serve, serve with intention.

At all times check in to make sure your intentions align with the person you wish to become.
