“Above all, brothers, stop swearing oaths — not ‘By heaven,’ not ‘By the earth,’ and not by any other formula; rather, let your ‘Yes’ be simply ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ simply ‘No,’ so that you won’t fall under condemnation.” - James 5:12, CJB
Promises Made, Promises Not Kept!
What promises have you made that you didn’t keep? Have you told people you would do things, only to turn around and not follow through? We have all done this at one time or another. We say we’ll do something in the moment, only to realize we won’t be able to follow through. Or, we say we won’t do certain things, only to do them. Many believe that unless you say the actual words, “I Promise”, or “I Solemnly Swear,” that’s its not really a promise, but we must remember that saying the words, “I Will” and “I Won’t”, are also promises. “I will pay you back," “I will fix that for you,” “I won’t tell anybody” ... It happens in conversations without a thought to what’s being said. Then, trust is broken and the dynamic of the relationship changes.
In order for our hearts to be right with God, we need our hearts to be right with people as well. It’s okay to say the words, “Let Me Pray On That." Whatever we do in our daily routines, with whatever conversations we have, may we be slow to speak and pray on all things and do unto others as we would have done to us. (Matt. 7:12)
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
