The old adage “The road to hell is paved with good intentions” is well-known, but how many ask why? Why should good intentions produce anything but good results? And notice, it’s a road, not a little pathway. And it’s paved, not dirt or gravel. This is a serious warning.
Good intentions. “I want the best for my child.” “I want to make the world a better place.” Intentions like these seem pretty good - unless they are accompanied by “I know what is best for my child” and “I know how to make the world a better place.” This is where the black-top, the Macadam is laid for the road to hell. When we think we know everything about a situation, we should remember that we know less than 1 percent of all there is to know, so myopic is our view.
