I promise

haven't posted for a week. sorry. a wedding, thanksgiving, and friends from california made life a little complicated. i'll do better. i promi...

before i make a promise, i need to tell you something. i've been preparing for tomorrow's sermon most of the day today. we're on the ninth commandment. it says that we are not to give a false testimony against our neighbor. more than anything else, we are to be people of truth. our word must be counted on. the things we say carry amazing value and must be trusted above all, if we are to ever make a difference in the world. frankly, if we are ever going to know god and experience his presence in our world, we must be true.

Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman. Psalm 15:1-3

so how's your word? are you trustworthy? do you speak the truth, or nothing at all? can you be counted on to communicate from your heart and speak no slander? i hope so.

anyway, i'll do better. i promis...
