Above all, my brothers and sisters, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. All you need to say is a simple “Yes” or “No.” Otherwise you will be condemned. ~ James 5:12
We find it easy to trust people who say little and back up their words with their actions.
We learn to avoid those babbling fools who talk and talk but never back up their words with action.
Want to keep your integrity intact? Let your words and actions come together to tell your story.
Keep your language clean, promise what you intend to deliver, and don't make bargains with empty words and no action.
Speak truth. Live truth. Confess your mistakes. Repeat.
