This week I had a young woman–who I’ve had a few lovely spiritual conversations with–say hi and hug me in passing. As she left she said, “If you have free-time, we should hang out this week.” I quickly agreed, then spent four days not thinking about my hastily said yes.
The spirit challenged me this week that when I say ‘yes’ I need to be a person of follow-through. There are so many in our lives who let us down with empty promises. May I be a person of my word–especially when dealing with people who may look to me as the example. I need to show what it means to mean what I say and stick to my words.
May we be people who “Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t'” (Matthew 5:37- NLT) and stick to it.
Just a thought.
