On Promises

Animated old man making a cross sign on his heart

When things are going well, when we are happy, excited and ecstatic, we have the tendency to make promises that may be hard to keep. And if we stay true to our promise, it may not be for the best.

Herod was having a party. He was so enamored by the dancer's performance that he was willing to give her up to half his kingdom. But Salome asked for John the Baptist's head on a platter, because her mom Herodias, who had a grudge against John, wanted him dead. With a heavy heart, Herod kept his promise.

Let us guard against the jubilant times when promises flow easily.

​Let's follow Jesus whose promise of bestowing us eternal life is given with a steady dose of truth and sacrificial love.
