19 Mar James 5:12

12 But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but your yes is to be yes, and your no, no, so that you may not fall under judgment.

James summarizes Jesus’ teaching on oaths in Matthew 5 in this one verse. As you reflect on these words, consider ways you have been harmed and you have harmed others through broken commitments. Resolve today to be a person who honors God through your trustworthiness.
