Let our yes be yes, and our no be no
Each day, I'll bet the majority of us use the words yes and no several times. Some may be associated with internal thinking, and some may be used at work, school or while running errands. The fact is that all around us are choices - not always yes or no, but those two words are at the root. The choices we make are reflected in what we eat, drink and wear. They also dictate how we live, where we live, and what social groups we are a part of. While the choices themselves are various. As stated above, each have yes or no at the root.
Yes or no is the root in all we do. The two words govern our very lives, reflecting choices we make along the way. Newtons 3rd Law states that: "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction". The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. Therefore, when we decide to drive above the speed limit, the reaction could be a moving violation, death or at best, the loss of excess fuel. Another example could be when we decide to follow the wrong crowd - the reaction could have a long lasting negative impact on you personally. The point is, the one action may have many many reactions...
Today look at your life, and then look ahead ten years. Where do you see yourself? How are the choices being made today impacting who you wish to be, where you wish to live or doing what it is you wish to do?
Then look at the choices being made daily. Do they lead you closer or further from your dream ten years down the road? When we choose to follow the wrong paths, making the wrong choices, the outcomes typically have a high price to pay. Make good choices and reap good things all the days of your life - you are worth it!
Matthew 5:37 says "All you need to say is simply 'Yes' or 'No' ; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
