It is the thought that counts, and not just when you are giving gifts. The thoughts precede the actions every time. Even automatic man or woman makes a conscious decision to do what they want to believe is automatic. Thoughts matter. They count. Maybe if we do more thinking and inputting truth I to our thoughts (Bible reading), we would spend less time sinning and trying to make it right again after. Prevention seems to be where we should invest ourselves. Doesn’t that make sense?
