Proceed with Godly caution, as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:
“Later when the anger of King Xerxes had subsided, he remembered Vashti and what she had done and what he had decreed about her.”
That’s hard for me, isn’t it, Jesus?
…to remember my own words and have to decide
whether to honor them
or eat them.
Either way, it can be tough.
Sometimes I write checks with my mouth
that have the potential to empty my account.
I was talking so big at the time, impressing everyone…
now it’s time to back up my words with actions
and I don’t want to!
But it’s a matter of integrity, isn’t it?
If I promised it
I’ve got to deliver
no matter what the cost.
Otherwise, my word is meaningless.
I’m just another liar.
But there are times when what I said
was just plain wrong –
which requires me to pick up my fork
