But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
I must confess, I have a few pet peeves. One is being late, one of the others is saying “Yes”. When you say “Yes” you are giving a definite answer. Christians have struggled with this, especially when it comes to other Christians. They feel as if their “brother” or “sister” will release them from their “Yes” if they renege on their commitment. Whether it’s business or a personal commitment, being reliable says everything about your character. It shows integrity and that you hold your commitments to others in high regard. Before you say “Yes”, pause and make sure you are willing to follow through before you commit.
