Say you have a Frisbee dog at home. You know, the kind that catches Frisbees. You enter him into all types of competitions and he breaks his leg playing Frisbee. We all know that the dog is going to take at least a couple of weeks to heal. Would you make your dog go out and perform injured? The answer is no because you love your dog, and you want him to get well so that he can play Frisbee another day. As a result, you may lose a Frisbee competition because you were a no-show. When we have Biblical values, we know that if we are asked to do things by other people who do not understand us as well as we need to be understood, they may be asking us to play Frisbee with a broken leg. We know that if we do, we are going to re-injure ourselves. This is when we have to allow our “yes to be yes and our no to be no” (Matthew 5:37), which is simply a way of protecting ourselves. It may not seem loving to the person who wants to control you, but it is loving to God because you are taking responsibility to fix that puppy’s broken leg.Let your yes to be yes and your no to be no!

Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
