Swearing an oath in a court of law or for other legal and official reasons
may be necessary.
But in other instances swearing should not be needed.
If we swear for other than legal or official reasons perhaps
it is because we are not confident or convinced that others believe us.
If our yes and no are not enough it may be because we are not always truthful
or that we tend to change our minds after we speak.
When we are honest and trustworthy there is no need to swear by anything.
Yes or no is enough.
Do you feel you need to add to your yes or no to make a stronger statement?
Blessings this day of grace,
