I have now concentrated all my prayers into one, and that one prayer is this, that I may die to self, and live wholly to him. –Spurgeon
Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. Ecclesiastes 5:5
I would much rather someone not committing to do something than to say they are going to do it and then never lift a finger to do it. It makes for very awkward moments when someone says, “I’ll take care of that for you” and then never fulfills the commitment made. When you see them in the hall they avoid you like you’re the plague. When you see them at Walmart they turn and go down another aisle. I would much rather you just tell me the truth rather than say you’re going to do something and then never come through with it. I’m glad the Lord isn’t that way…He is good to His Word! As one has said, “God said it and that settles it—no matter what it is!” He's good for every promise He has ever made!
