WORD FOR TODAY. CJM

James 5:12 “But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and [your] nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.”

We know of the warning in the sermon on the mount about swearing.

Matthew 5:34 “But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:” Matthew 5:36 “Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.” Anything more than a simple yes or no is presuming that we have more power than we do. We do not want to be condemned of God for thinking too highly of ourselves.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
