I cannot and will not claim that I always do follow through on what I promise. There have been times that I have failed and those times eat at me. But this time I chose well. I stopped what I was doing and honored the commitment I had made to my friends.
There are at least two lessons here for me. First, as it says in Psalm 15:4, do what I say I will do even if it hurts. Second, do not always say yes.
