My willingness for something, my good desire and intention is not enough. It’s a good start, a good sign. Because everyone wants the willingness, the good intention, to be confirmed with corresponding actions that will prove that we did not stay in the idea and the intentions, but we paid the cost in time, fatigue and money and finally did the work we had the desire to do.
My good inclination to become a doctor when I was a young person does not mean that I became a doctor if willingness did not complete the twenty years of studies to learn science and then practice the profession and finish the cycle wish-studies-results.
But when we come to the issues of living faith in the living God, we usually live in kindergarten, intentions and willingness, emotions and not the exact knowledge and practical application of the Word. We may learn to spell, but we are far from understanding the meanings that transform our lives.
We stay children in mind and mature in fraud, children in religious feelings but professionals in greed and perversion. And then we blame everyone else but us for the misery and poverty of our lives.
