“What is a leadership Promise? When leaders make a promise they are forming the basis for trust. They do what they say they’re going to do! It shows that the leader is fully committed to their purpose, vision, and cause. When leaders make a promise it proves they are trustworthy and can uphold their word. Leaders need to deliver more than they can promise, because results will win the respect of others. Making promises that a leader can keep shows character and a firm commitment to serve others. Are you able to make promises you can keep as a leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. I was told that a man was known by his word. Substitute Promise for word and you have the same thing. The one thing I have come to know and believe, is that there is One who always keeps his Promise/Word, and that is Our Creator God. His word is true and his promises fulfilled, always. Maybe not in the time as we would like, but in His time. May you keep your promises today and always as He blesses you.
