Years ago, I was reminded of a powerful thought, “Never make a promise you can’t keep.”
I realize circumstances can prevent us from keeping a promise. However, this is not my point.
The point is to be careful and thoughtful before speaking.
Jesus noted the need to be careful about our words. Yes needs to mean yes and no, no. When we say we will do something, then do it. Nothing is more frustrating than when someone says, “I’ll call you right back,” and then they never do.
Be a leader who is bound to their word. Never make a promise you can’t keep!
