Are You a Promise Keeper?
“It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.”
(Ecc 5:5 NASB)
Our integrity is always demonstrated by what we say. Do we offer more than we can deliver? Do we paint a picture that is overly rosy? Do we dangle a carrot in front of our staff that will be hard to meet? The Scripture says our yes should be yes and our no, no (see Mat 5:37). There is no grey, just black and white.
Sometimes it is not easy to say it like it is. Often when circumstances change, we struggle to meet our commitments. Perhaps we should do what we said we will do and let God sort out the consequences. He will honor a stand that is done in line with His requirements of us.
We can live by the Word of God, keep our promises, and run a successful, growing, profitable, influential business.
Quick Prayer: Jesus, You always demonstrated absolute integrity. Help me to walk like You. Amen.
