Keep Commitment

“House Rules”

 

Do you get more from breaking a commitment, or by keeping a commitment?

 

Genesis 2:15-18

A work ethic, drawing the good out of life, and allowing God to set the standard, were “house rules” established in the garden with mankind.

 

When we break these rules, we have a Savior that still loves us, and died for us.

 

Matt. 5:33

Most commitments are broken because it was no longer convenient to keep them.

 

Matt. 12:36-37

Don’t make casual commitments that you don’t intend to keep.

This is the foundation for falsehood.

 

Psalm 36:3-4

Casual commitments you don’t intend to keep put you on the path of the wicked.

 

Matt. 5:43-48

The trend within our Christian society, is the acceptance of this kind of thinking:

“We love people that talk, think, act like us”

 

Staying within the boundaries of a promise, no matter how problematic it becomes, is a real commitment and true freedom.

 

Commitment to the ideal, without committing to the reality, is a path to failure.

 

Psalms 37:5-6

God’s commitments do not have a shelf life
