Do your mates trust you? Do they know that whatever you say you will do? If I walked into your college or school tomorrow and spoke to your mates, what would they say about you? In this passage, Joshua is making good on the promise his men made to Rahab. He says leave her alone. Joshua has done what Jesus would later tell us to do, he has let his yes be his yes. In other words, he has done what he said he would do. The way we are with other people is so important that Jesus said that there is no need to dress things up, just do what we say we will do. If we say we will pray for someone, then pray, better not to say we will do it at all if we are likely not to do it. If we say we will look out for a lonely person at school, then look out for them. If we say we will do something and we don’t, then what are we showing others about Christians? No need to swear on the Bible or say “I promise,” we just need to do it, or not bother saying it. We just need the words that come out of mouth be our bond. Being a Christian isn’t as easy as people make out, is it?
