Here’s the question we all have to ask ourselves: Based on your track record, would you trust you? If your promise was a plane, would you fly in it to Australia or the Philippines – or even to North Bay? We trust that the airline industry will maintain their planes – replace broken stuff, check out their pilots – and do all the stuff necessary to get us safely where we need to go. But there are times, as Jesus made clear, when we make promises and then spend our lives looking for loopholes when our promises get inconvenient.
If you want to live with character and integrity… if you want people to believe what you have to say, if you want to have good, trustworthy friends, if you want to finish well – and leave goodness and love behind you, if you want to look forward in eternity to the reward for faithfulness, truthfulness, and self-control, then the trustworthiness of your word is your credit check.
