A Simple Yes or No Should Do

Matthew 5:33-37 – “Again, you have it heard it was said to the people long ago, ‘do not break your oath, but keep oaths you have made to the Lord.’ But I tell you do not swear at all, either by heaven, or by the earth; or by Jerusalem. And do not swear by your head. Simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes,’ and your ‘no,’ ‘no’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – What an incredible testimony it would be if others did not require an oath from us. That they would be merely satisfied by a simple yes or no from us. There are few people with that kind of integrity and that inspires that kind of trust.

My Advice – Be a man of your word. Someone who others can rely on to always keep his word.
