Book Blog 16: Cross Your Heart

| July 20, 2010

What happens if you cross your heart with your right hand, and cross your fingers with your left? Do you still have to keep your promise? What if you’re really mad at the person with whom you’ve made the agreement? Can you get out of it then? The Wild Thing of Proverbs 7 thought so. In this Girls Gone Wise video book blog, you’ll learn about covenants. You’ll discover that even if you don’t cross your heart or sign a piece of paper—even if you just shake your head and say “yes”—even if what you said you’d do is just a little thing, your word is your word. A promise is a promise.

    I’d like to be more faithful in the little things and think the best way I could do this is to pray before I make any commitments. I need to make it sure it is something God would want me to do and that I am able to do it otherwise I have no business agreeing to it!

    I tend to be quite reliable. I don’t like to back down on my commitments so I get burnt out because I also tend to over-commit myself. In my opinion this is just as much of a sin as actually not following through with my commitment!
