Soul Sunday

Keeping promises is extremely important in order to keep friends, family and even co workers close to you. Sometimes, nothing else in the world will hurt as much as a broken promise or turning back from your word. 

Not surprisingly then, the Bible speaks about keeping promises quite a lot. God, after all, is one who  keeps his promises and is incapable of lying or deceiving anyone. He is always true to His word and always delivers on it. As such, we are to emulate Him and strive to maintain that kind of candor and strength in keeping promises. 

 Can we say the same thing in our own lives? Will other people say it of us?

Keeping your word is the essence of integrity. Honesty is making your words conform to reality. Integrity is making reality conform to your words. It is essential if you want to be successful in life, work and relationships. Integrity is required for trust. When you say something, or that you will do something, and don't you teach others you cannot be trusted. If people can’t trust your word, they won’t trust you.

Truth is some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them. 
But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.

Keep your promises, make good on your word and open your soul to being one who lives in integrity and truth.  Like an oak tree be the strength that others can depend on.
