After The Promises

Broken PromiseSo how is 2011 treating you? Have you had any broken New Years resolutions? Worse, has somebody broken their promises to you yet? Oh dear, sorry to hear. It seems endemic doesn’t it? Just had a chat with somebody else too, I think there is another divorce on the cards. Sigh.

Why is it that people don’t keep promises?

Somewhat unrelated, but I will connect the dots for you quickly: I read about an elderly lady who defeated some robbers at her home. I also read about a little girl who walked several kilometers to summons help, all alone. And I was wondering what made them do it.

I’ll tell you what happened. That little girl – and the 83-year-old woman – defeated much more powerful men because it mattered more to them. It was important to them to succeed.

When you look at your goals, ask yourself, how much does it matter to you? Because THAT exactly represents your chances of reaching your goal. When you break your marriage promise (and your Covenant with God) it doesn’t really matter enough to you.

The sad truth, and the life lesson I have to learn to accept, is that some people simply don’t care as much as you do. They probably never did. Get over it and move on. Be a better person, and you keep your end of the promise. That is all you need to feel good about yourself.
