100-Word Stroll, 6/25/17: IF YOU SAY IT, DO IT.

Posted by on June 25, 2017

“It was important to me to watch over my word.”

Things stick in your mind, don’t they?  This sentence snagged mine in mid-think.  Coffee?

When no one’s word means anything anymore, when every third or fourth TV ad is another law firm saying, “You might be entitled to—–“, it’s easy to get used to nobody meaning what they say.

Politics?  Just don’t.

One of God’s Original Ten deals with honesty.  One’s word being one’s worth is not outmoded!  It’s so out of use few recognize the concept.  Yet it’s still real.  If you’re not sure you can follow through, don’t make rash or quick promises.  Better to graciously say no than give your word and not back it up.

Want respect?  Esteem?  Appreciation?  Keep your word.

Make it important for you to watch over your word.

Lead by example.
