Let what you say simply be yes or no.
Commitment is not easy because it takes perseverance and determination to be true to what you say and to do what you say you are going to do. Jesus invites us today to consider carefully what and who we commit our actions and lives to. When we do so, we are prepared to stand by it through difficulties or trials. Then our Yes becomes a true Yes.
But it is also important to understand what we say No to. We have to say no to sin and to evil and to also stand by that decision. But we are encouraged by the fact that Jesus stands beside us when we make our decisions in prayer.
Let us lift up to the Lord in prayer, all that we are committed to do in these days.
