Sunday Thought: Man, Do What You Said You Would Do

I have this contractor that has been doing some work for me on that old house I've been redoing. He is a youth minister at a church somewhere, but I'll tell you, it turns out his work ethic stinks. In fact, he took my money and didn't finish the work he was supposed to do.
Now this really gets under my skin. I have come to learn in life that you can't really even trust your brothers and sisters in Christ any more than the world. And I think there is something wrong with that.  I think of Jesus's words in Matthew 5:37:
37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
Maybe you can say that's about lying or even something else, but I think you can include being a man of your word also in this.

  1. I hear you Shane! The best example of marriages should be from us Christians...the best example of workers (employees) should be from us Christians...the best example of integrity should be from us Christians, etc. It is disheartening to see how often this is not the case.
