It will be good for us to start Advent, the preparation for Christmas, to reflect on this question:
"DID GOD EVER BROKE HIS PROMISE TO ABRAHAM, VIRGIN MARY OR ANY PROMINENT FIGURES IN THE BIBLE?"
Do you know that in the past, it was said people trust one another. There were no such thing as signing contracts as it happens when you are offered a job, buying a property, getting a car or purchasing a new electronic equipment. It is said in the past a VERBAL agreement was sufficient.
Today, though I still believe in verbal promises, many do not honor a verbal promise. Yes, as such I have been hurt, disappointed and manipulated as a result of my trust in the verbal promises made by others.
As for this mid-week of 1st Advent, there is still time for us to reflect on what is a Promise/Agreement? What is my concept of God's Promise, my understanding of a Divine Promise?
A promise we give or get from someone contains, always contains, a list of either gifts or hidden lies. What is the nature of your promise? What is the nature of God's Promise?
As Advent progresses I will share with you on God's Promise.
