A promise is only as good as the person making the promise. A promise from a thief or a liar is nothing. Trusting a promise from someone who has broken their promises in the past is even harder. What promises are you making in your life right now? Are you keeping them? To whom are you making these promises? Maybe it’s to your children, your spouse, your employer, your landlord, or a friend.
God has made a promise to all who call on His name: He gives abundant life now, and will give abundant life forever. That is quite a promise, but what are your opinions of the One making the promise? Can you trust Him?
