Good intentions often do not bear fruit unless we set up the mechanism.

I have a calendar reminder system on my computer that sends me email reminders. It has generally worked well, but lately my email outbox gets hung up and the mail is not sent; I've had to rely on another reminder through my g-mail as a back up.

A mechanism is a system. For example, coming to church and Sunday School is a mechanism to get you some Biblical nutrition; it is not enough. But it is one mechanism which, if done regularly with a good attitude, will help. The Daily Bread is another mechanism some people find helpful. A weekly Bible study can be another avenue. Biblical teaching on the radio another. Listening to the Bible read is yet another.
