Do you still keep your word? And if so why do you feel that it's important to do so?
I have my own thoughts on this but I'd first like to hear what other people think.
Okay, so you have two questions. I'll answer both.
Yes, I do keep my word. Whenever I tell someone I'm going to do something, I do it. If I make a plan with someone and someone else asks me to do something that interferes with the first commitment, I politely tell the second person that I'm already commited to something else.
As for your second question, why I feel it's important? Two reasons...
Keeping my word is one of the few things in life that I have control over. And I feel really good that people in my life know when I say something is going to happen, it will indeed happen. I never take that away from them.
There's another question you didn't ask... How do I keep my word?
Easy. I never make a commitment when I have any doubt about keeping it.
There are only extreme cases where commitments have to be broken, or plans get changed. Such as a death in the family. Or weather conditions. Or flight delays. These are things that should always be understood and accepted.

Why do most people, whilst they acknowledge God's existence fail to live for him?The devil has done everything he can to make people think that he doesn’t exist and yet most people live for him. Most people, though they believe in God don’t live for him. Why is that?
