Bible reference(s): 2 Corinthians 1:20

Politicians often make big promises.

Promises for tax cuts and a better world. Yet politicians are notorious for breaking their promises.

So much so that Bernard Baruch once said, “Vote for the man who promises least; he'll be the least disappointing.“

It’s hard to trust someone who breaks their promises.

God makes promises in the Bible - bigger, and even more extravagant promises than anypolitician. He promises blessing for his people and connection and intimacy with him.

Yet, God is different, he is known for his faithfulness because he keeps his promises.

2 Corinthians 1:20 says, For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ.

Politicians make promises that they can’t keep, But God makes even better promises that he does keep - giving us good reason to trust him.
