A promise is defined as a declaration or assurance that one will, or will not, do a particular thing or that a particular thing will, or will not, happen.
How often do we hear, or use, the phrase ‘I promise you, when I get back from…’ or ‘I promise you, when I get my hands on…’ Are we really making an honorable oath or just using the word ‘promise’ to emphasize our point or to convey a specific state of mind?
This week, we are asking you to view a promise as a sacred oath. It can be to help a close friend fulfill a life-long goal, to keep a dark secret for a close relative, or whatever covenant you can dream up. Something occurs though, and your word of honor takes a flying leap right out the window.
Prompt: Make someone a promise, then break it. Tell us what happens.
