The road to hell is paved with good intentions
We must pay attention to our experiences, thought processes, emotions, and biases. It is easy to think that good intentions automatically translate to good means and processes; unfortunately, that is not the case.
Not only must we pay attention to our own self, but we must also pay attention to the context. The authentic exercise of virtues require a back-and-forth between our external and internal context. We must have the presence of mind to adapt and improvise when the context requires.
If we are not mindful or if we are prone to relinquish our agency and go autopilot all the time, the life we are steering with good intentions might lead to a mirage.
John 15:26-16:4A. Yeah, the hour comes, that whosoever kills you, will think that he does a service to God.
3 And these things will they do to you; because they have not known the Father, nor me.
