Does Your YES Mean Yes, and Your NO, No ?

Yes and No. They are two of the first words we learn, and boy are they misunderstood. Wisdom is knowing when to say yes and when to say no, even as a budding toddler.

Therefore, we must strive to be intentional with our word and hence time:

  • Don’t say yes to everything.
  • It takes courage to say no, even to seemingly good opportunities.
  • Closing the door to one opportunity could open gateways to others.

Integrity shines through when you let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no (Matthew 5:37).

Is your word bond?

  1. Becoming a stepmom has taught me to question everything before saying anything. If you can’t give yourself a reason for your answer (whether that be yes, no or anything else) how on earth are you going to explain it to a 7-year-old. The world according to kids is not nearly as complicated as we adults make it.
