There are some great reminders here.

Consider putting in a "real life" example, or opening with a short story, rather than a Bible verse.

Again, some great reminders, and this was presented very clearly. Great job.

I want to say "Thank You" to those who so faithfully write devotions. It is easy to see your heart for God's truth.

An interesting take on the topic I hadn't thought about....thanks for sharing!

You make some good points in this piece. Try to connect with the reader, though. Start with an anecdote. Also, for a devotional, this seems a bit long. Keep sharing God's truth in your writing.

Great devotional. Lots of truths to remember and consider. Thanks for sharing it!

Your writing, and your message, are very good.

I agree with some of the other comments--a devotional with a contemporary example usually reaches a broader audience, and this may be a bit long for a general reader appeal.

I like your take on the topic, and the scriptures you used were very appropriate.

Thanks for sharing these great truths. Jesus said that we would have to give an account for every idle word spoken by us. Yet all of us fail here - it's wonderful he is merciful and forgiving.

I like what I call Christian writing - Thanks.

This adds to and builds on a study I led just last week on oaths and promises made rashly. I love a good devotion; thank you for writing and sharing this!
Usually, I kind of gloss over devotionals, but this one really grabbed my attention and I read it twice. Something about the way you presented it kept me focused.
But did I miss the good and bad topic? Anyway, thank you for a good lesson.
