Oh, this one can be a tough one, can’t it? I’m reminded of that one 80s song with the same title as this blog post…
“You made me promises, promises knowing I’d believe. Promises, promises you knew you’d never keep.”
Too often as people, we make promises that we can’t, or sometimes don’t even intend to keep. Big ones, little ones. I’ve done it. Chances are, you’ve done the same.
And, what happens when we do this? Nothing good, that’s for sure. Promises get broken and then the damage comes.
Trust can be damaged and lost. People can get hurt. Like I was saying, nothing good.
The verse in the photo above was today’s daily selection on the Bible website I check every morning. There are certain verses that really just have a way of making you think, and this one falls into that category.
So, just a reminder today to also think…before you make a promise. Are you willing to commit to fulfilling that promise? Are you even able to fulfill it?
Those are questions you need to ask yourself and make sure you have a good answer to *before* making the promise, because…
It’s better not to make a promise at all than to make one and not keep it.
Have a great day, everyone.
