  • We should never make promises. Keeping a promise is the basic foundation for trust in any relationship.

    I believe we are all guilty of breaking a promise. Jesus said if you are a person of your word, you shouldn't need to strengthen your promise with a vow. Keeping your promises will establish your reputation as a person of your word.

     How many times have we said we would do something, and then not follow through?
