When I was a boy my mom made this comment! “Son, you may not grow up having much money, but you’ll always have your word, be a man of your word!” In other words when you tell someone you’re gonna do something, do it!
I’ve also heard this saying, “Promises are meant to be made and broken!” Some people believe that nonsense because their thinking is all wrong! Did you know that God promises us certain things? One thing He promises us is eternal life if we accept Jesus His Son!
The only kind of life that God offers is eternal life. If you lose it tomorrow or next week or next year, it isn’t eternal life that you have. It is some other kind of life, but not eternal life.
I John 2:25 says, “And this is the promise that He hath promised us, eternal life!”
