Can friends predict your thinking and behavior? Do you make hollow promises to appear spiritual? Do you say yes to good opportunities and change your mind later? Do you call people in advance to let them know you can’t fulfill your commitment? Do you demand more of others than you do of yourself?
Frivolous pledges are made and even oaths taken by many who want to appear Godly. Jesus told his disciples to be straightforward with their promises.
Matthew 5:37 says, simply let your Yes be Yes, and your No be No; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. (1)
We are praying for you today.
