014: On Truthfulness

“Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool… . But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.”
Matthew 5:33-37, NKJV

Question for Today

Jesus says that any affirmation stronger than a yes is from the evil one.

In what area could you better follow through with your word consistently, so as to have no need of promises or oaths?
