“Promise little and do much” – Hebrew Proverb
We often make tons of promises to people around us. Unfortunately, we sometimes forget about promises we make, not on purpose in some cases, but just because life is so busy that it’s easy to forget what we promise.
On the other hand, making a lot of promises and never acting on any of them is even worse. What if we were able to take our promises, magically form them into physical objects, and hold them down with band-aids? Maybe if we physically held down our promises and attached them to our bodies, it would be easier to remember what promises we made and make sure that we carry out our promises.
But sometimes, we all have to be a little careful in the amount of promises we make to people. Taking this idea of physically holding down promises with band-aids, maybe we should beware of making too many promises so our bodies won’t be covered in too many band-aids. After all, it’s better to “promise little and do much”.
