Do your best to teach your kids that their words count.
We do this by making our words count.
When you look your kids in the eyes, make your word solid.
Try not to use the word “promise” with your children unless you are absolutely sure you will not break it.
Some Christians have taken the power out of the word promise by overusing it and not following through.
“Later this afternoon we will drive over to the park, I promise.”
The afternoon rolls around and you are feeling wiped out and you then say, “We will go tomorrow, I promise.”
Always try not to make promises you can’t keep. Teach your children that words count.
God keeps His promises and so we should try our best to do so as well.
