this has been on my mind lately. Do I swear to my kids? lol, ok, not that kind of swearing. Promises? Do you make them? Even making promises to our kids and not keeping them is wrong. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. When you make a promise to a friend, promise to pay a bill or promise to take our kids to a movie.
I hear by will not make promises that I can not stand by. I will let my yes be a yes.
James 5:12 (New International Version)

12Above all, my brothers, do not swear—not by heaven or by earth or by anything else. Let your "Yes" be yes, and your "No," no, or you will be condemned.
