Daily Verse: “Take a man’s garment when he has put up security for a stranger, and hold it in pledge when he puts up security for an adulteress.” Prov. 27:13

Obligations fulfilled.

No matter what the commitment, we must live up to it. Keeping a deposit on a debt owed forces people to fulfill their obligations or lose their deposit.

We planned our summer vacation in January. Desiring to explore the coast of Maine, we booked several campgrounds well in advance. However, when my father-in-love declined, and God called him home, we had to cancel. As a result, we lost the deposits we paid in several places. We fulfilled our obligations.

“Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’;” Matthew 5:37

Keeping commitments does two things. First, as you learn to live up to your words and pledges, you will mature. And secondly, you will stop making rash promises, taking time to think about your “Yes” or “No.” 

Accountability by making a deposit motivates us to fulfill our obligations and helps us think before we do.

Lord, forgive us for any unfulfilled obligations in our lives. Please help us think before we commit and fulfill the promises we make. Guide and direct our paths, keeping us on the straight and narrow. IJNIP. Amen
