Intention, the definition of intention is; a determination to act in a certain way. Most humans will often seek to act with good intentions or aim for a result that is pleasurable for all parties involved, and or will be perceived as a favorable actions. Most people have been taught to treat people the way they want to be treated. That principle has been taught in most religions. In the Bible, the scripture Luke 6:31 reads “Do unto others as you would have them do to you”. The Quran has a similar teaching, “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself” ~ Sunnah. There are times where we act with good intentions but the receivers perception of your deed may not come across that way. Was it then a waste of time to act in that manner? No, you shouldn’t allow what you meant for good to change. Not to take you to church ,but often times God is using you and only you for that task. We have to fine tune our spirits and or align ourselves to hear (I’ll save that for another post) Never allow your good to be changed by a reaction that you don’t control. When intentions are pure it shouldn’t matter what another person thinks. Do good just to do good. That and only that should be the intention.
