“Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord will stand” (Proverbs 19:21).

Perhaps this proverb inspired Bernard of Clairvaux to write, “Hell is full of good wishes or desires.” Ordinarily, this is expressed as, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” Wanting to, going to, and planning to is best fulfilled by a vibrant and sacrificial faith that passionately seeks to glorify the Lord in every pursuit. The masses exist going through the motions while the faithful live the day with intentionality.
