“But You Promised!”


"But you PROMISED!" 


 “But You Promised!”


 

Have you ever…


• Promised to deliver something by a set date and later regretted it?


• Volunteered for a job you had no idea would take so long?


• Agreed to a deal that looked great but wasn’t?


• Accepted an invitation you wish you hadn’t? Eventually, we all learn by experience a basic law of life:



It’s always easier to get in than get out! 


The Bible says,

“It is a trap for a man to dedicate something rashly and only later to consider his vows” (Proverbs 20:25 NIV).

There are three common commitment traps


 

The Money Trap


1. The Money Trap:


It’s always easier to get into debt than out of debt! It’s always easier to borrow than to pay it back.


The Partnership Trap


 

2. The Partnership Trap:


It’s always easier to get into a partnership, or a relationship, than to get out of one!


The Partnership Trap


 

3. The Time Trap:


It’s always easier to fill your schedule than to fulfill it! You can get so many irons in the fire that you put out the fire!


The solution:-


Remember what the Bible says – don’t make rash vows.


In other words, choose your commitments carefully;


think before you speak;


under-promise


and over-deliver.


With this, you’ll build a reputation as a person of your word.
