Good Intentions

Have you ever thought of doing or saying something nice for someone, then didn't do it right away, and then it never gets done at all?
I have. And it feels rotten.
I have so many good intentions and then something distracts me from getting it done. 
Why is is so hard to keep my focus on what would so obviously bring joy and blessings?
Satan distracts. He will place things in front of me that will seem more important or of a higher priority. And I sometimes choose badly.
Lord, help me to be alert to the prowling lion that seeks to devour the right things that I know to do.

“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.”
James 4:17 ESV
