Can Your Word Be Trusted?

August 8, 2012

in the generous life

From The Generous Wife archive:

When someone doesn’t keep their word it hurts.  It generally costs us and makes life more difficult.  It’s easy to get upset when people fail, but the real kicker is whether or not you (and I) keep our word.  We can’t do much about others, but we can deal with ourselves and act in integrity toward others.

As a kindness to your husband, be careful about what you say you will do and, when you do commit to something, follow through in a timely fashion.  Your word should mean something and you want to be that someone who can be trusted and counted on.

The heart of her husband trusts in her… Proverbs 31:11a  NAS

This is true! It is easy to fall short because we figure we’re married to them so they’ll understand or get over it. If I do happen to fall short, I give my husband he courtesy of an explanation and he is very gracious. After all, I am the mother of 4 young children. I homeschool and take care of the entire household. Time, energy and means do get away from me from time to time and I fall short of a promise. In those instances, hubby understands. The same thing happens to him. But, just blowing it off…..not good.
