Yes and Amen

What I said I would do is not going to happen. I was wrong. Integrity of heart is not only doing what you say; it’s admitting when you were wrong. Then your “yes” will be “yes, and amen.”

“Are you now going to accuse me of being flip with my promises because it didn’t work out? Do you think I talk out of both sides of my mouth—a glib yes one moment, a glib no the next? Well, you’re wrong. I try to be as true to my word as God is to his. Our word to you wasn’t a careless yes canceled by an indifferent no. How could it be? When Silas and Timothy and I proclaimed the Son of God among you, did you pick up on any yes-and-no, on-again, off-again waffling? Wasn’t it a clean, strong Yes?”
