Good Intentions

Foolish behavior wrecks good intentions. (Andy Simkins, blog writer)

Have you meant well in doing something but really goofed in spite of your good intentions? We can all understand that. Most of us don’t really want to do something harmful, but because of haste or poor planning or maybe simple incompetence, we mess it up. Writer Peter Drucker put it this way: “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.”

The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. (Proverbs 21:5)
