Keeping Your Promises

In Joshua 24:14-28, Joshua and the people of Israel were making a covenant to serve the Lord.  The people agreed to many things.  Yet in a very short time they would forget Joshua and God.  The whole theme of the book of Judges was, "Every person did was right in their own eyes."  One of the tragediies of man is that they can never keep a promise of agreement.  Many a covenant with God over the past has been broken.  I have been guilty of making a covenant with God and then breaking them.  The result is that our lives are not as fruitful or God cannot use us as He wishes too.  When you nake an agreement with God you better keep it.  Jesus dealt wit the problem of oaths.  He said we should only say, Yes or No.  Remember a person is only as good as their word.  How good is yours?  Your promises for today are Matt 6:33, Matt 22:37-40, 2 Chron 7:15, Rom 12:1-2, Prov 3:5-6 and Rom 14:17.
