Walking your talk isn’t easy. Best to just make your walk first, then talk from it. Never make any commitment until you’ve determined that you can and will do whatever it takes to keep that commitment.
But, why is it so important to keep every commitment?

Only God keeps every promise. He reserves the most promising promises for people who keep theirs, especially the small and difficult. · · · →
