“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin” (James 4:17).
The popular adage, “It’s the thought that counts,” shouldn’t be taken lightly. To be in the forefront of someones mental processes is to hold a special place. It means you are part of that persons ongoing, unceasing prayer life. However, there are times when our thoughts don’t count; when only action matters and specific deeds will make a difference; when we need to be the answer to the prayer; when our intention to do something is replaced by actually doing it.
On any given day, God can do more with an ounce of action than a ton of intentions.
