A few word spoken by one in faith, a mere gesture of what one will do…words that declare
ones honesty or conveys one intention of what one will do or a cryptic utterances of words,
said inside a secreted place were only a few are ever permitted to go. In a Synagogue or
place of worship and spoken by two…vows that proclaim honor and a commitment that will
be shared by two. Some leaders place their hands on the most holiest book in the land and
speak words of honesty, integrity and service to the people and as a testimony of what they
will do…Never let any words proceed out of your mouth that you know not to be true. No
words spoken in a promise are just mere words, but once proclaimed as an action become a
broken promise and lie’s once those words of the utterer fails to deliver on those words that
were spoken by them to be the truth.
