Do you know how to live with integrity? Taiwo wasn’t really interested in helping Ola with her mathematics assignment. She had consented to it while they were amongst friends and didn’t want to look uncool. The others had clapped for her, Taiwo never felt this good.

Now, Ola was coming over to Taiwo’s house with the assignment, any minute from now. Oh boy! Taiwo suddenly wished she had not agreed to it in the first place. Her favorite show would be coming on the television soon and she didn’t want to miss it.

‘Why the worry?’ Taiwo’s mom asked her. ‘You are wearing out the rug.’

‘I promised to help Ola with her assignment but can’t anymore. I want to watch my favorite show on television.’ Taiwo answered.

‘Now what did Jesus say about that?’ she asked.

‘We should keep our promises?’ Taiwo said.

‘Exactly!’ said her mom.

Jesus said we should not be too hasty to make a promise. Making a quick decision without first thinking it through could be a problem for us like Taiwo is in right now.

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.James 5:12, KJV

Keeping promises is very important as they help to build our integrity and credibility.

‘So what are you going to do?’ Taiwo’s mom asked her again.

‘I guess I can watch the show next week. Ola won’t be happy if I don’t help her as promised. I have to keep my promise.’ Taiwo said.

I am so proud of you.’ said her mother, clapping for Taiwo.

The doorbell rang, Ola was at the door.

God bless you immeasurably. Amen

Lord Jesus, help me to keep my promises so I can be a person of integrity and credibility. Also, make me wise enough to not make hasty decisions or promises in your mighty name I pray. Amen.

Action plan:
Are there promises you have made to others and you didn’t keep? Pray about them and ask Jesus to help you keep them. Also, ask for forgiveness from these people.

My yes is yes. I will not be double-minded.
