Phone call #1:
“Diane, the new tenant was wondering if she could have your air conditioners.”
“I’m sorry, no, they are promised to others.”
“Are you taking them with you?”
“No, they are promised to others.”
Phone call #2:
“Diane, the new tenant will give you $300 for the air conditioners.”
Temptation #1: Man, $300 would come in handy right about now…
“No, I’m sorry, they are promised to others.”
“But, Diane! $300!”
My word is worth more than $300, isn’t it?
He who swears to his own hurt… ~ Psalm 15:4
LORD, my word is my bond, my word is my oath - even if it costs me.
“No, I’ve given my word.”
"Are you sure?"
Temptation #2: Am I? I could just come up with an excuse to the others. They would never know...
"Yes! I am sure."
I gave my word (He who swears) even unto my own hurt (not receiving $300). I may be shy $300, but my heart is wearing a smile.
YES, I am sure!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
