If we make a promise to someone we are obligated to go through with what we promised to do for them. A promise is declaring that you will or will not do a deed for someone. If someone tells you something in confidence your promise to them is not to tell another living soul what they just told you in total confidence.
If you break a promise with someone you have hurt your relationship with that person and you have broke the confidence that they had in you. A promise is not just something you say you will do it is something that you must do if you have committed yourself to do so. If you say you will take someone to the grocery store and then you do not word will get around that you break your promises and you will lose respect quickly.
If someone tells you you have great promise they are sure that you will dedicate yourself to the job at hand. A dedicated person does not stop a task halfway they take the task to the finish line. Your promise to your employer is that you will do the best job that you possibly can and you will complete it in a timely manner.
We promise to follow Jesus by keeping the sabbath day as a day to rest and to worship God. We promise to be good shepherds and spread Gods good works.We are to follow the Ten Commandments as they are not called the Ten suggestions. We promise to treat others as we would want to be treated if we were in the same situation as they are.
Gods promises to be by our side everyday of our lives. Without God by our side protecting and nurturing us along in life we would not make it in this World on our own. God gives us new hope everyday and he brings joy, peace and love into our lives. Jesus came down to earth as a human to bear the cross for our sins and died. He then rose again so we may have eternal life with God. Glory be to God in the highest.
