How’s your credibility? Are you considered honest? Dependable? Trustworthy? Reliable? Do people take you at your word, or do your words have to be qualified for people to take them seriously? According to Jesus, our words should be able to stand on their own—based upon our solid character and track record—without the need for qualifiers like oaths, vows, and invoking the name of God. God will judge the truthfulness of our words—whether we invite Him to do so or not! Isn’t it interesting that our statements without oaths seem to take on less credibility when we invoke oaths on other statements? Whether we like it or not, our words reflect our character. Unreliable words reveal a character flaw—a lack of integrity. How’s your credibility?
