Today is May 25th so let’s check out Proverbs 25 for wisdom for men.
Verse 14 hits home; “People who promise things that they never give are like clouds and wind that bring no rain.”
For the one who works the land, there is a reliance on regular rainfall. The clouds roll in and wind picks up and there is a clear promise of rain but alas, it may not arrive!
This is the feeling of one who hears a ‘promise’ and allows his or her anticipation to rise. Expectations soar as the time draws close. Emotions engage and excitement builds. But then – nothing. It doesn’t happen. The ‘promise’ goes unfulfilled. Sadness and disappointment replace the excitement.
So today I ask myself, have I made any promises to anyone that I have yet to fulfill? Dear God – help me be a promise keeper and not a promise breaker.
