Good Intentions

“But I meant well” isn’t enough. Listen to this Proverb:

If one blesses his neighbor with a loud voice early in the morning,
It still will be counted as a curse to him.     (Proverbs 27:13)

“Wake me up to tell me something good? It had better be real, real good or else!”

That’s how most feel, and what the proverb is getting at. Things must be done appropriately. And this applies especially to those things we do in God’s Name. Take witnessing for Christ, for example. You can do this well or poorly—depending upon how appropriately you present the Gospel.
