Do not bite off more than you can chew


Mother of God:  All your sacrifices must be thought out. Not keeping your promises towards God hurts Him. You know yourselves how much it hurts you when people do not keep their promises towards you, especially your loved ones. In the same way, God is deeply hurt when you neglect the promises given to Him. Just think how many of you would enter the promised paradise if God repaid you in the same way for your broken promises (…). Your attitude to promise-making is too careless. You will be kept accountable by God for each given promise. Therefore, My child, I prefer that you offer to Me the smallest undertaking, but one which you will be able to fulfill, rather than a great undertaking, that you will not be able to carry out. I am happy, however, that you come to me with a generous heart.
