This post is a continuation my thoughts about resolutions.
Aren’t all those resolutions we make, promises? We promise to lose weight, exercise, work less, spend time with our families, read the bible, pray more, drop bad habits, or do a myriad of other things.
Normally we teach our children, that a promise is a promise and must be kept. If we keep promises to others, then why not keep a promise that we make to ourselves?
James 5:12 (KJV) gives, “But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.”
We don’t want to fall under condemnation because we appear to have lied to others, to God, or to ourselves.
Keep yourself on the winning side. First, only promise to do that which you really can do. Next, celebrate all the ones you have kept. The good feelings will help you to effortlessly keep all your promises of 2010!
