DAY 8: Answer EVERY Question Today with YES or NO!
“Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” - Matthew 5:33-37
Today you will answer anything asked of you with a simple “Yes” or “No”. You will be a person of your word today. Don’t tell anyone that you will do something you won’t. Think twice before saying ANYTHING and then mean what you say COMPLETELY.
Go to every event invite you have and put on there “YES!” or just as emphatically “NO!” No more, “I’ll see”, “Let me think” or my personal favorite “I’ll pray about it”. Nope, today, you will be a person of your word... like Jesus!
Circle up here at the end of the day and tell us how that felt. It might grow on you!
