Don’t know how well you can see it but in this picture of a gutter downspout it hasn’t been properly sealed.
It was put into place with the best of intentions. But good intentions are not enough, what you actually do is what matter.
If we intend to pray and read our Bibles but never do either we are profited nothing. Yet if we follow through God blesses us, we see results.
Had this downspout been properly sealed the results would be no leaking water but perhaps more importantly we wouldn’t see anything. Sometimes the best results are the ones we don’t ever see. One day God will show us those results it may just not be till Heaven. Just get it sealed properly in the here and now.
